Overall, I think we had an alright meal. Nothing to write home (or write on the web) about, but it was fine. The cheese steak spring roll appetizer was the best part of the meal, it was very good. A bit pricey ($8 for two rolls) but I enjoyed it anyway.

My meal was on special, the red snapper filet. It was cooked fine, but generally boring to taste. I also ordered a side of macaroni and cheese, which is usually excellent at a restaurant. This mac and cheese was not creamy enough for my taste and I was unimpressed.

I had dinner with my brother, his girlfriend and my girlfriend. My brother seemed to really enjoy his meal of Southern Chicken and Ribs, but then again, he’ll eat just about anything.

My GF had the short ribs, which were OK, I tried them and they were good, but again, nothing special.

For desert we shared the fried PB & J, which was not impressive. It pretty much tasted like a PB & J quickly fried in a buttered pan.

Overall, the meal was OK, the beer was cheap (they have a 10 PM to 12 AM late night happy hour) and the conversation was good – I probably won’t be back.

On a side note, this is my first trip back to Northern Liberties in about 2 years and what a difference. It reminds me of New York City, it was a lot going for it and if the influx of restaurants, bars and young people continue, it will certainly be a great place for meals and fun.
