Speakeasy Saloon Restaurant Review: It's easy to have a good time at Speakeasy Saloon in the heart of Canton. The crowd is lively, the environs fun, and the food usually decent. The roaring '20s theme alluded to in the restaurant's name is brought to life by a series of colorful murals in the dining rooms: elongated female figures in flapper garb dance with handsome, tuxedoed beaus while Sydney Greenstreet-types shark it up at the card tables. The menu combines upscale bar food with classier fare. Appetizers emphasize the Mediterranean side of the menu, and include such mezze as saganaki, spanakopita, and Greek meatballs. From there you can move on to something simple, like herb-crusted rack of lamb, or one of the restaurant's full-scale production numbers like veal Raphael with shrimp, mushrooms and capers or the Cajun-inspired shrimp Tchoupitoulas, served over linguine. The Maryland-style crab cakes are especially good. Portions are big and service is generally attentive.
