Chequers Seafood + Steak Restaurant Review

: Fresh seafood, best savored simply prepared, anchors Chequers' reputation. Appetizers may serve as small entrées paired with a salad. Three soups are regulars: New England clam chowder, gumbo and lobster bisque, the latter rich, creamy and chunky with lobster meat. Mesquite-grilled fresh fish selections with a choice of a vegetable side are a focus, while still more fish mains with individualized accompaniments fill the lengthy menu. Steaks come in various sorts and sizes, including surf ‘n' turf: filet mignon with crab cake, fried shrimp or seared scallops. Sunday brunch also gets high marks; the drop biscuits, with their crisp exterior and fluffy interior, are just like Grandma used to make. The improved wine list highlights the familiar, but offers many wines by the taste, glass and carafe, and an extensive array of dessert wines. Apple croustade makes a fine finish. Come for happy hour from 4 p.m.-7 p.m. daily, and enjoy $5 and $6 appetizers or a one-pound lobster for $13.
