Went to the bar with some friends for a drink at Kleins, it wasn't bad but I don't think it was my favorite. The burgers (I do understand this is a fishery) were not very impressive and the sushi rolls were a bit over priced....More

Eat at the Waterside, and picked the seafood on the specialty dinner with a average entree price of $30. Food was so far below what I expected that it should be called mediocre. The entrees come with winter vegetables, parsnips and carrots. This is absurd...More
