M&M’s offers Killian’s and Bud Light on draft for $1.50 on Wednesdays! After a long hot day a cold beer, or three, seemed like a good idea.
This blog needed updating, so Diann and I went to the bar area, of the restaurant, and did the WIFI thing. Two hours, two glasses of water, and two Killian’s later and I was hungry.
The restaurant has a modest range of fare- from basic, and seafood themed, sandwiches to entree’s. The soup specials were corn-crab chowder; and split pea. We opted to start our dinner by share/sampling the soups and having “half salads”. The salads were so large we ended up with soup and salad for dinner and didn’t move on to a sandwich or shared entree.
One might see this photo and think the view to have been bad. Not so. Since Oriental is a shrimping town, as well as boater-tourist town, dining on the harbor includes aspects which are part of the reality.
Food prices: Crab Chowder $5.95; Split Pea $4.95; Salads $4.95
The chowder had an intense spice, which I believe was Anise. Our waiter said he asked the cook but was told, “just salt and pepper”. It was spiced with a licorice flavor- and was very appealing. A secrete ingredient perhaps?
