We weren’t looking for anything fancy, just something with decent food and maybe some draft beer. Ninety Nine Restaurant fit the bill. The draft selection isn’t creative or even huge, but we enjoyed the Shock Top wheat and Sam Adams Summer (a slightly more full-bodied, amber-y wheat). None of the appetizers were really calling our name, though we did luck out and get some popcorn while we were waiting. Seems the kitchen was backed up that night, though we still thought the service was very quick.
Both of the entree selections were good. The combo platter included fried fish, fried shrimp, deviled clam, a small cup of clam chowder and fries. All the food was well prepared and fresh. The fried shrimp entree came with a plate full of (good, seasoned) fries, topped with a ton of very fresh shrimp. The coleslaw was basic but crisp (that’s a good thing), and perfect with a little bit of salt and pepper.
Overall, we’d go back if we wanted fried seafood.
