I love the fried chicken plate. Value and portions are worth the trip. Family owned and run, mother and son were working hard during my visit.

Spoon serves delicious and surprisingly affordable dinners. It is a small place with limited indoor seating and a small patio. We got take-out several times. Every menu item we tried was delicious. They have delicious fried chicken, turkey dinner, meatballs, etc, etc. The gravy on...More

Had a great dinner at Spoon, we had the stuffed shrimp - stuffed with shrimp, and the chicken parmigiana. Shrimp was delicious and the chicken parm included a good piece of chicken that was not over fried.
