Reuben Ruminations:

: Interesting to have a place in Lafayette with a nautical motif, other than the chain stores. Decor is interesting. Dominant feature is a huge saltwater tank. There's a wall they uncovered while putting the place in that has old advertisements painted on it, and there's a little blurb on the back of the menu about it. Electronic dartboard, nautical prints, mezzanine dining area too (it was pretty warm up there though). Lots of TVs. Service was very friendly. Quick too, but that may have been because the place was pretty quiet, even at 12:45. I hope this is just because word isn't out yet. Potato soup was excellent, and I had about the best Reuben I've ever had. It looked like it had Russian dressing on it rather than thousand island. Homemade chips were okay, better with a bit of salt, but I'm not a chip fan anyway. They also have Hornesby's cider on tap, which sounded pretty good, but I didn't think it was a good idea to have a pint during lunch and try to stay awake at work afterward. Tuna steak and swordfish steak sandwiches also looked good, but I had to administer the Reuben test first; maybe next time. Only drawback I noticed: no non-smoking area. They said they had filters to take care of it. No one was smoking while we were there, so I have to take their word for it. Visa and Mastercard accepted, prices were pretty standard as far as I could tell. Overall, I recommend it, and will be back. Mostly I'm telling you about the place to try to make sure it's still open when I return. ()
