With a theme inspired by the owner's black Lab, Rigger, this establishment manages to get away with playful wagging-tongue dog clocks alongside wood-paneled finery. An eclectic menu marries a surf-and-turf concept beautifully; the owners ship in fresh seafood daily (which is perhaps why their crab cakes are in such high demand), and charbroiled steaks are perfectly cooked to your liking. The sushi bar is always packed, especially during happy hour which runs daily 5–6 pm, offering half-price sushi and appetizers. Arrive a little early to order a glass of vino at the lively bar. When visiting in summer, make sure to grab a seat in the popular outdoor patio.
