151 Water Street
(at Summit and Jefferson)
If you're looking for a great meal, and night out with friends 151 On The Water is the place for you!
The former Murphy's has been revived to show the best in Jazz, Blues and local musicians.
Open for lunch and dinner Tuesday through Saturday, 151 On The Water offers a casual lunch and fine dining menu that owner Mike Scott says "I'd put our signature dish up against any other restaurant in town."
I've been in several times, and each meal has been amazing. The menu has something for everyone. There is a $5.99 lunch special, as well as dinner specials. And very reasonably priced! While out to dinner with friends, we ordered 2 appetizers, 4 drinks, 1 soda and 4 meals, and spent less than $125 (not including tip).
I've tried something new every time that I've been in, but my lunch time favorite is the Chicken Philly, and dinner would have to be the Chicken Piccata.

Not only is there great food, but there is great music 5 nights a week. You can come in for Jazz, Blues, Open Mic Night and the musical talents of great local artists. You will also be able to hear live music a couple days a week during the lunch hours.
The bar is always coming up with new and creative drinks for any taste. Recently, "Candy Cocktails" have been a big hit - including Cotton Candy and Rock Candy martinis. Not to mention the Strawberry Champagne Martini, or any of you other favorite beverages.

One of the benefits to the local musical community is that now there is another venue to perform at. But there is an in-house sound system. There is no need for them to bring in all their own speakers or sound board - it's all provided for you. And for the audience, there's not a bad seat in the house! The music is played at a level that is easily heard, no matter where you are sitting. But it's also not so loud that you can't have a conversation with the person sitting next to you.
If you are looking for a place to host a party or dinner, 151 On The Water can accommodate you. Even bringing in live music for your event.
The staff at 151 On The Water is great - all very kind and there to help you with anything. And the owner is there, greeting everyone and making conversation. Mike wants to make sure you're having a good time, that the food is good, and you're enjoying the music.
Make plans to stop into 151 On The Water soon!
