The food: Experience the fusion of New England and Southern staples with menu items such as lobster rolls, collard greens with smoked bacon, New England clam chowder, and fried North Carolina catfish. Order a cold Narragansett and some oysters from the raw bar (dine-in only) and finish your meal off with banana pudding.
The cost: Raw bar oysters start at $2.25 and entrees run from $10 for the fried chicken sandwich to $27 for the fish of the day.
