While we try to support local restaurants as much as possible, we also enjoy chain spots like Cracker Barrel and Waffle House (why are there none in the Northeast?) too. Hook & Reel is equally as enjoyable, though more in a seafood boiled-in-a-bag kind of way. This Cajun-inspired restaurant also has things like po’boys and shucked oysters on the menu. Everything here is almost as good as an order of smothered, covered, and peppered hash browns. Almost.
