"Very good fish in a casual setting. Have eaten here several times and have not had a bad meal. Try the gumbo or any of the fish specials. Painfully noisy most evenings, and simply "Too noisy" at lunch. Go at odd hours (3:00pm?) and you'll have a great meal! Friendly staff."

Kenny’s Wood Fired Grill is reminiscent of a 1940’s Chicago style chophouse with a classy, relaxed and warm atmosphere featuring the finest wood grilled seafood and meats. Our well rounded menu represents the traditional American classics with an emphasis on Kenny’s specialty, New England style seafood. And, while you are waiting for your table in the dining room you can enjoy the energetic “goose bar” sipping on a Grey Goose™ martini poured from our signature frozen tap system or a great glass of wine.

"Overall, the quality of the food is not what we expected. Was much better the last time we ate here ~5 years ago. Burgers were over cooked and uninspired. (Many better options at Liberty, Angry Dog, Motor & Maple, Dee L's and any number of other places in town...). Salads didn't measure up to Houston's.... Lobster rolls no longer on the menu.... Service was friendly, but inept (Had to flag down server to request ketchup, and when it was finally brought to the table, she only brought a small dollop... certainly not enough for the 4 of us.). We won't be back."

"Nice room with a Texas Kitsch theme. Foods's OK. Try the fried chicken, brisket or tacos. Signature margarita is a show stopper. A fun place to take out of town visitors who think Texas is all about cowboy boots and belt buckles."

The best seats in the house are at the dining room’s soba bar that wraps the stone garden.

"We go to Tei-An frequently and usually leave very happy. However, on this visit, the kitchen was off..... Soba noodles were overcooked and gloppy, Crab & urchin risotto was lukewarm, green tea flan had a rubbery skin and was too gelatinous.... Overall disappointing. ...... Hopefully this was just a bad night at what is normally a very good place."

Our food is not just a meal, it’s a taste of Afghan culture! Our menu offers Afghan novelties such as Mantoo, Qabili Palao and Sabzi Chalao, as well as an array of grilled kabobs and menu items from other cuisines such as Dolma and Hummus. Each plate is made with exotic spices and served fresh. Stop in and see what we are all about and discover a cuisine you never knew you were craving!

"If you are up for something a little different, Nora is a good bet. The food is consistently good, and not run-of-the-mill. A good place to take visitors that are OK to try something new, but not up for anything too exotic."

Located on Main Street in the heart of downtown Dallas, CBD Provisions is a spirited Texas brasserie that evinces the growing vitality of the central business district. Developed by Consilient Restaurants, this urban-rustic eatery features modern interpretations of Texas tavern fare from Executive Chef Michael Sindoni, who employs an artisanal sensibility and strong commitment to local and sustainably raised ingredients. CBD Provisions is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner every day of the week, and serves a complete menu until midnight on the weekends. The Sunday brunch is not to be missed. Menu items range from buckwheat pancakes with local berries and bourbon barrel aged maple syrup for breakfast to BBQ gulf oysters with absinthe whipped lardo for dinner. The interiors, conceived by New York-based design architect Claudia Woods, are equal parts rich and raw-historic brick walls, bronze cabinetry, rustic wood beam ceilings, tufted leather banquettes and antique mirrors.
