    As usual The Food Market does not disappoint. Brought my cousin visiting from NY and everything was amazing! We had the beer cheese pretzels, three different cocktails (the Basic Witch is soo good if you like Pumpkin spice!) we had crab cakes and the short rib and of course the bread pudding! Every bite was beyond delicious!

    Only complaint is that the music was way too loud for a sunday brunch time. We asked the manager to turn the music down twice. Service is always great! And the manger was great in accommodating our friend's requests for changing her entree.

    Food remains top notch, fresh and delicious. We experienced the delivery of a small bug in one of the drinks, it was simply replaced. The replacement drink was not well mixed nor chilled. We were told that another drink moved to a small juice glass because they were “out of” the larger glass. However the larger glass continued to be served to our table for the other drink. The dining room wasn’t full, not sure what was going on. It appears that some positive aspects of dining here are starting to wane after a very strong start.

    Every bite of the Fun Chicken salad was a great experience. Flavorful, cooked well, with a little flair. Great service; it appears these wait staff, bar, and host all actually enjoy working together. I caught two times they helped each other out. Nice. Nice vibe. Good food.

    This place was on our list to try out. Went on a Friday evening so was lively and quite busy. We sat in bar area. Outside seating was limited, so come early. We tried several small plates . Octopus, yellow fin tuna balls, Parmesan fries and the triple wings. Drinks menu is somewhat limited with none of our go to lite options. 5 beers on draft. Food was ok and popcorn was nice touch. Server was helpful and pleasant. I don’t think we will be adding to our rotation but might come back to try the dinner options.

    Everyone enjoyed their meal. My favorite thing here is the cream of crab soup and the truffle fries. Fried pickles and beer cheese pretzels don’t disappoint either. Get the crab cake. Only reason I didn’t make it 5 stars is I’ve been to the Hampden location and I enjoy the ambience and food better. This location is private, which is nice I suppose.

    My only complaint is the noise level made the dining experience less enjoyable. I’m only Conveying my experience along with my dinner date. Consider, cement floor, glass walls and corrugated steel ceiling. Absolutely no noise dampening. Very very loud.
