Angelo's on Main Rockledge Restaurant Review

: As the canteen for the Rockledge Golf Course, Angelo's has to walk a fine line with confidence and grace: casual yet elegant, festive yet relaxing, a mix of comfort food and healthy fare. After all, it must be all things to all people --- a pub for weary golfers, a quickie eatery for families with children, a source of tradition for the older clientele and one of refinement for the wheeler-dealers. Often, it succeeds: the kitchen can as easily whip up chili-topped nachos for a famished teen as it can a thick, juicy, all-natural New York strip for a CEO. Appetizers alone often satisfy --- French onion soup topped with two cheeses, plus an order of classic clams casino, amounts to a meal in itself. In fact, while most of the entrées aren't exactly revolutionary, a bit more creativity inheres in the smaller plates and sandwiches, from Rhode Island-style fried calamari with banana peppers to a trio of Maine lobster sliders and a vegetarian Philly. When the weather's good, dining on the patio overlooking the 18th green can be thoroughly relaxing, but be warned --- since Angelo's remains a popular area location for large gatherings, boisterous groups of revelers can sometimes intrude on the quietude.
