This small but charming restaurant was an unexpected treat! The oysters were great as was the fish special. Large nice bar and music playing as well as friendly staff made this a treat!

A bit of disappointment as we arrived that evening to discover Nate has sold this restaurant not even a week prior to our arrival BUT...

Having been 'non local' regulars to Nate's, we were not disappointed in the least. The service was great and our food was spectacular as usual. The restaurant was buzzing which makes for an exciting ambiance and we were checked in on several times by the manager.

Just a quick note to the new owners: understandably you want to make your own 'mark' on this establishment but please keep in mind it's difficult to improve on almost perfection. Thanks for taking up the reigns from Nate! We look forward to dining again very soon!

We had a terrific dinner at Nate's. After a rather slow start, the service was excellent-- our server was personable and attentive, the ambiance warm and comfortable and the food was terrific. We shared some absolutely wonderful roasted oysters as an appetizer, The crabcakes, or as our server called them "pillows of crab', were among the best I had ever had-- lots of crabmeat, no filler-- just lovely, (I had to share my order with my husband, but there was plenty).
Nates is one of the reasons we would look forward to returning to the area.

Our first night of a weekend anniversary getaway - dinner at the Trick Dog Cafe - and we're off to a great start. Dinner was great. Black beans and shrimp appetizer was tasty and more than we needed with homemade chips too. Crab cakes (two large) were broiled instead of fried and mostly lump crab - delish! More than I could eat even with sharing many bites with my husband. He had the rib eye steak which was very large and cooked perfectly. Caesar salad with anchovies which he didn't think he'd like, but he did. Who knew? Shoestring potatoes were very good. Not your usual fries. Crispy and well seasoned. The interior is interesting - dramatic but not weird. A very, very nice place that I wish was closer to home.

moved to the area in early December. Took almost 2 months to figure out that this was a restaurant and we were basically living walking distance from it. If the dog sign says sleeping, the restaurant is closed. If the sign says playing, they are open. Husband and I both had the pork shank special and it was fall off the bone delicious. The salads were quite good.
