A message from Chef Leonard: Come on in and eat — and catch the game while you’re at it. During baseball and football season, we always have all the games playing. I’ve actually lost count of how many TV’s we have in here. While you’re here, try the new crab cakes and always remember to ask your server about the daily specials.
Other information: We do delivery in the area around the river, the causeway, 14th Street, and as far as Cortez. We also do catering — and I can match virtually any price. If you want it, I can make it, and I’ve never had a dissatisfied catering customer.
