We took friends to York St for their first visit. We sat in the back patio. The Bloody Mary is house made and highly recommended. We all had the jalapeño pork chop at the waiters suggestion and it was fantastic. We highly recommend this spot.

Can't wait to come back and try something else. Loved the smoked salmon wrap. The homemade caesar dressing is soooooo good! Hubby loved the seafood chowder and the cucumber basil soup was delicious too.
