Food
 
Appetizers are served all day. There is a separate lunch and dinner menu with a limited offering of what you would find on the Yachtsman's menu and the Captain's Grill.

Atmosphere
 
Dark, quiet and intimate with a "I could set up shop and stay here my entire trip" comfortable feel to it. There's a large bar with high top chairs in the back, along with several wooden tables and chairs spread throughout the lounge. One side of the bar has a few booths as well. The tv is usually on a sporting event. It looks like someone couldn't decide between a rowing theme and a log cabin theme and decided to mix the two, which as long as you don't think about it, came out fine.

One of the walls is shared with the Yachtsman Steakhouse's meat room where you can watch the butcher preparing cuts around dinner time. This is definetly one of those hidden treasure lounges, usually pretty quiet during the day and late nights. Tends to get busy with people waiting for their table at the nearby restaurant at dinner time. A great place to escape from the business of the day and relax with a nice cold beer.

 

Appetizer Review 
We ordered the Chilled Lobster Sliders ($16). These tasty rolls put the lobster slider served at Food & Wine to shame. Three small buns arrived with a generous portion of what was readily identifiable as actual lobster! Intact giant pieces of claw meat to be exact. The amount of seafood in these sliders is enough for two people to split for a light lunch or late-night snack. Served on a soft, buttery roll with lettuce, the seafood was fresh, sweet and delicious. The Vegetable Orzo salad was a nice accompaniment to the seafood. (The Spinach Dip also goes perfectly with a couple of beers!)

The Wild Orchid is my favorite drink by far!! The mix of TY KU liquere in there with the other ingredients is perfect and sooo refreshing and fruity. It almost smells as good as an Orchid too haha

Ooohhh those do look good! The one at food and wine was a total rip off. Might have to try this next visit.
