Really great experience. We didn’t have a reservation, waiting about 30 min for the communal table. Food was great, and fast. Drinks were also good.

Drove 40 miles to check this place out. Was it worth it, yes. Would I do it again, no. We had the Baltimore Club which was excellent and the Autumn Chicken Fold. The Autumn Chicken Fold was very different but outstanding.

Food Narket continues to be one of my favorite local restaurants. Although the environment is rather noisy, you can always count on a great meal. Starting with fried pickles with your cocktail, whether you choose seafood or steaks, the meals are always prepared just right...More

Went on a busy Sunday after a Zoo run. Food came very quickly and was ok. Potatoes were way over salted. 2 breakfast dishes, one juice and 2 coffees went over $50. Maybe I will try again when they aren't in a rush...
