My favorite dish at the Dockside is the sauteed chicken breast medallions with angel hair pasta. Absolutely yummy! Maybe they'll add it back onto the menu. I've also had the steak quesadillas. The last time I ate there I got the fish tacos with dirty rice. Yum! I also like to go there to hang out with friends and listen to the bands play. They have a real nice setup as far as indoor and outdoor seating. I can even tell when they have bands playing when I'm at my house, as the sound carries across the water.

When I eat at High Tides, I usually get the Commander Quesadillas. It's on the appetizer portion of the menu, and it makes for a great meal. Indoor or outdoor dining with a great river view (they're right on the Boardwalk) is offered. Inside, there's a cozy fireplace area for chilly days. They are closed for the winter months (end of December to the first week in March).

Coffee from Espresso Station (now Tattle Tale) is a great pick-me-up and you can grab a bakery item (or two) to compliment your cup o' Joe.

Hunan Diner has great General Tso's chicken. That's usually what I order when I go there. Half the time I eat in the dining room, and the rest of the time I order take-out.
