“Fantastic scallop dinner!!!”
Reviewed 28 June 2014 via mobile

We just enjoyed a fantastic scallop dinner at Congress Bar and Grill today. It was a special on the menu and was some of the tastiest and well prepared scallops that we have had. They were served with a homemade tarter sauce that was great, more of a dipping sauce than a thick tarter sauce that enchanted the fresh fish. A yummy coleslaw was served as well as French fries. Dinner was delicious and very reasonably priced at $17. I had read about the restaurant on trip advisor and it did not disappoint. We will definitely return again.

“Delicious”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

Great local place with an outstanding menu. Try the hummus plate - it's a meal in itself. Salads are also delicious.

“Stopped for lunch here twice on our trip”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

Deb makes great drinks. Hard to get a seat at the bar though. Salads are a whole meal, and you can't beat a great burger
