Ballyhoo Grill Restaurant Review

: As the name suggests, this is a popular---and sometimes loud---place to gather with friends who like music, drink and seafood. The fish is brought in fresh daily, as are the steaks. All dressings, soups and sauces are house-made. Try the cedar-plank salmon. It's just what it promises: a filet of salmon grilled on a cedar plank over a cedar fire. One nice touch: The pasta entrées come in half or full servings, an increasingly popular price- and stomach-saving option. The tables are far enough apart to give guests a sense of space. The open kitchen is visible from most points in the restaurant, making the dining experience almost a cooking lesson, too.
