A couple weekends ago a friend of ours invited Pascal and I out for supper at Joey’s Only. I had been to Joey’s once before at a different location and really enjoyed the food. I was excited to go again. It’s funny really because our friend actually doesn’t like any type of seafood but loves the chicken fingers so much that he’s a regular there.
I on the other hand, LOVE seafood. To start, me and Pascal shared some crispy calamari. It was served with both seafood cocktail sauce and tartar sauce. I loved the cocktail sauce and calamari combo so much that I asked for extra sauce to go with my meal.
We went on a Saturday and as soon as I saw what the deal of the day was I knew what I was ordering. The special was crab legs, signature breaded fish, fries and a caesar salad. More food then I could eat, but my eyes are always bigger than my stomach. The fish is deep fried to perfection with a crispy, golden batter which goes beautifully with the cocktail sauce.
