This is a wonderful local restaurant with a great view The chef is very .innovative with a creative menu. This is not your typical Fish Shack. 2 for 1 entrees on Mondays during the off-season is an exceptional deal. As for plastic utensils...The Canal Cafe is on the CANAL so it seems only logical that it is environmentally conscious. Good decision.
Fun place to go on the weekend. Hard to find it in the dark ,so be persistent if you miss the sign the first time down the block. It's always crowded. I agree that the sweet potato fries are great -- and I like them with the crab cakes. A real treat! Nice location right on the canal. For the price though, it would be nice to get real silverware rather than plastic.
