Good Mood Food

Tonight took us to Market Street Grille for my dad’s birthday (he’s in town for business). The building is super old — it was built in the 1850s and was reportedly used as part of the Underground Railroad during the Civil War. (There is a tunnel system that connects many of the buildings in Harrison and leads to the river.)

Market Street Grille’s menu is full of comfort food — meatloaf, steaks, pastas and a bountiful dessert selection, which are all made in-house.

We started off our meal with an order of crab cakes. I don’t know how they tasted, as there were only two on the plate, which is fine. I’m not a big fan of crab cakes. But if there are more than two people in your party, double up your order. I had the jambalaya, which was fantastic. A tad spicy, but that’s to be expected from good Cajun food. And because it sounded good, I finished my meal off with peach cobbler. The caramel syrup drizzled over the ice cream was definitely the icing on the cake.

Just because Harrison is a small town, doesn’t mean it’s not worth stopping by for an hour or two.
