If we were restaurant psychologists, we’d diagnose this place as bipolar. The front room is a boisterous bar with Big Country on repeat; the dining room is a serene, candlelit venue for local cabaret acts. But whichever vibe you prefer, the menu is the same: Sweet, meaty crab legs are a standout from the raw bar. Chunky crab cakes are topped with a sharp chive mayo; and juicy salmon filets are flanked by perfectly grilled shrimp. (Be sure to call ahead on Cubs game days because hours vary. On second thought, avoid the place altogether on game days, unless you want to fight the crowds.)
