The Sardine Factory for many years is the standard bearer of superb seafood and historic decor that is a tribute to the owners Ted Balesteri and Burt Cutino. I took longtime friends there who wanted to get a feel for what the famous steakhouse Ernie's...More

Tried it for the first time, not bad at all. Attractive clientele at the time, fast service, and stiff drinks. The food was hot and tasty. And of course the bill was delightful. Only slight issue is if your on the other side of the...More
