A little disappointed with the over cooked salmon on more than one occasion, even after requesting the item be cooked "medium". But, overall the food is good. Ambiance is what makes this place; the windows and outdoor seating are great. Also should mention the extensive...More

Pies and Pints down the road had a long wait, so we ended up at Block. Better for couples than a family choice, Block did have some outstanding options on their menu. The potato leek soup was terrific, and came with two really great pieces...More
