Wooden City

Is there anything that Wooden City can't do well? When you look at their menu you'll find shrimp, salads, soups, chicken wings, burgers, scallops, steak, wood-fired chicken and more. I must confess, I sometimes get nervous when I see a menu that features such a wide assortment of food. But here's the thing with Wooden City: it's all really, really good. Here are a few highlights to consider having. The Fancy burger is featured in the the photo above. It comes with swiss, mushrooms, onion jam, garlic aioli and aged balsamic. You can't go wrong! The fried chicken sandwich will blow you away. It comes with honey, citrus slaw, fresh cucumbers, and zesty mustard. It's basically a party in a sandwich and there is so much flavor. Not to mention it's really big too!

Wooden City is warm & inviting! This modern restaurant has a glowing ambiance, you're surrounded by beautiful historical brick & greeted by their friendly staff!
The food was on point! If you're looking for something new this is the place for you.  From Lamb Bolagnese to pizza, wooden city has something for everybody.

This classic American grill artfully serves quality steaks, fresh and innovative seafood with enthusiasm by our experienced restaurant team. For an appetizer, I recommend you start with the seared Teriyaki tenderloins which include sushi rice, daikon spouts, and pickled ginger sesame seeds. The flavor is absolutely incredible. Then for the entree, I recommend you share the BLB. What's a BLB? It stands for Bucket List Burger. It's pricey at $25, but remember I said to share it. That or you can save some for later. The meat is Australian wagyu beef that is served medium and it comes on a housemade onion bun. As far as toppings go, it comes with bacon-onion marmalade, cougar gold cheese, a thin-sliced pickle, a beefsteak tomato, some butter lettuce and a roasted garlic aioli. You also get a heap of hand cut fries too. This burger is an experience you won't ever forget!

I am only through my appetizer and my cup of clam chowder and I am posting this review, because nothing could possibly beat the scenery, the calamari with fried artichoke hearts and clam chowder.  If ever in the area make this spot a priority!  Gosh darn it's been a while (even pre COVID ) that I have been to a place that has got it soooo right.  Well done Clinkerdagger, well done!

Wild Sage

Managing partners Tom Sciortino and David Wells and consulting partner Gare Traeger run the Wild Sage, housed in what was once an auto repair shop. The restaurant opened in 2006, the first thing you'll experience at Wild Sage American Bistro is the rich earth tones and classic architectural details that make our bistro both relaxing and refined. As far as the food goes, I've got two words for you: Yukon taquitos. These include an amazing Yukon gold potato, white cheddar, chile lime sauce, avocado and salted cabbage. Here's a fair warning: the sauce could be a little spicy for some taste buds.

The service was six star, food was five, and portions five. I would definitely come back the service and the food was really good. Andrew S.
