Default And it is located where????

While you are looking for someone who may have tried it, you may also get feed back from someone who has not been, but may try it...if they knew where it was.

Galley Rigione's was at 405 Union Avenue. Probably that's the location. I heard someone was re-opening it.

I recognized the faces from the Margate gazebo bar. The service is so so and the food was good, but not to go out of your way for.

I had lunch with friends yesterday at the 405. The food was delicious! The onion soup had a combination of bread, provolone and Swiss cheese along with the onions and the broth. The Reuben panini was also wonderful. I met the owner Dave. He seems like a great guy who is working hard at making his restaurant special. The place was very busy.
We will return again and again!

Went to the 405 last weekend. The menu was very similar to the Lakeside. Nice bar and décor. The food was good, as was the service. We will be back.

Thumbs up Great lunch today!

A few friends and I decided to check out 405 after the craft fair and we were very pleased. Fresh ingredients, great service, nice atmosphere and excellent food for the price. The Greek salad with grilled chicken was outstanding - two of us ordered that. One of my friends ordered the veggie wrap with sweet potato fries and cleaned her plate. And the specialty martinis were excellent!

Highly recommend!!! Nice crowd and very busy with crowded bar area and good number in dining room. Great vibes and friendly staff and patrons.

I believe we just found a new local hangout for the games and great food!

Thumbs up Good addition to the Lakes Region

Had dinner with another couple last weekend and everyone was impressed with the atmosphere and their meal. Dave the owner came over and said to try the baked stuff haddock with seafood stuffing and if we didn't like it he would buy our meal. Well he didn't have to buy it back because the wife cleaned her plate and hasn't stopped talking about it since. I had the steak tips and was happy with my meal as well. The prices are in line within our area and the staff was accommodating and friendly.
You should try his lunch menu, great sandwiches just like his other shop "Lakeside famous Roast Beef" down the street from Dairy Queen...

Post Stopped by for dinner

Hi all,

We stopped by for dinner tonight and I spent some time talking to Dave.
  • They are currently operating with a limited menu and will be moving to a more comprehensive menu with additions such as steaks and salmon in about a week. The current (limited) menu is very pub food oriented. I took a photo and can post it if anyone is interested...probably makes sense to wait for the full menu to come out.
  • The lot across the street does belong to the restaurant. At night it is almost impossible to see the sign and we ended up parking on the street not knowing.
  • They will be putting together a web page...currently there is only a facebook page.

As for the dinner, the service was attentive and the quality of the food was very good. My only gripe (minor) is that the nachos were a little bland for my taste, but knowing that I would ask them to kick them up next time.

Default We enjoyed 405 Pub & Grille

We have been fans of Dave, etc at the Lakeside Roast Beef joint for some time and finally made it to the new place at 405 Union Ave, a few doors down.

One hamburger. Geez, it was big. One salad with steak tips. Very tasty.

The place was clean and quiet even though there were about 20 folks in there. The layout is pretty cool with TV's to watch sports (or weather reports) in several areas. The service was good and ladies friendly.

A surprise was the moonshine at the bar. We were offered a taste and of course ordered one. I guess they mostly sell it in "shots". Had a fruity flavor. Something different but good.

We will go there again. It is a mellow version of the 99 Restaurant. Or we got there on a slow day, not sure. The menu is limited but surely something for everyone. If you want the signature roast beef, it is not on the menu and you will have to stop at Lakeside.

Give it a shot. Parking is limited though.

Default 405 Review

Stopped in a few weeks ago to try the 405. Dave greeted us and quickly seated us to the right in the dinning area, where it was super warm (I love the heat!). Leah was our server and was good. We started with drinks... I had something on the menu called the Loopy Fruit. TERRIBLE! Leah later told us that the woman behind the bar had to look up what was in the drink (um, if it's on your drink special menu, shouldn't you know what in it!?) My husband ordered a Bloody Mary, which is hard to screw up, that was also terrible! Watered down and the Bloody Mary mix we could tell was from a bottle. We aren't people to cheat a restaurant out of food or money, so when Leah asked how the drinks were we told her, but asked her not to replace them or comp them. We started with the buffalo tenders as an appetizer and they were GREAT! Freshly made and a good portion! My husband ordered the sausage sub for dinner and I had the veggie wrap. The veggie wrap was good, wasn't blown away by it, but not sure how you could make it better. My husband's sausage sub wasn't very flavorful... the peppers and onions had been boiled and it took most of the flavor away from the sandwich.

Went back about 2 weeks later to catch up with some friends for just drinks and appetizers. I was late to arrive and everyone had food and drinks when I arrived. The nachos and pizza they ordered looked wonderful, were huge, and tasted great. I again tried to get a different drink special on the menu, this time option for the Pear-tini. Waaaayyyy too much lime juice and again wasn't impressed with the drinks. I ordered the buffalo tenders, knowing they were good.

So bottom line, great appetizers and pizzas, but skip the cocktails (I'm not a beer or wine drinker, so I'm outta luck with that one).

Thumbs up Two visits; both great!

First stopped in a few weeks ago, and sat in the "porch" area adjacent to the side street. On that visit I had a great chicken parmesan, made even better by the excellent marinara sauce (same as at the Lakeside). My wife tasted it and agreed, saying next time she'd ask for some spaghetti/pasta, even though it's not listed separately on the menu, just to get some of that sauce.

Last week, on one of those super-cold nights, we tried them again. Interestingly, even though it was freezing out, inside it was warm and cozy, due in large part to the fact that both entrances bring you into the same large outer area before you open the inner door. Food this time was ribs for me and salad with steak tips for my wife. She also had one of their soups ('chicken rice' I think). Again, both of our meals were excellent. My rib order was huge (two large slabs - for $17, I think), and my sides were fries (nice: generous serving and hand-cut) and broccoli (instead of cole slaw). Usually I end up asking for some barbeque sauce on the side, but these ribs were so moist and flavorful I didn't even need the extra sauce. I ended up taking half the ribs and fries home. My wife also really enjoyed her steak tips/salad, and I know this for two reasons: First, that's what she told me (duh), but more importantly - and tellingly - she did not offer me ANY of her steak tips, which she usually always ends up doing. We've never ordered any drinks beyond beer and wine, so I can't really comment about "drink/bar quality," but I was happy to see my beer served in an icy/frosty cold glass and my wife was happy with the volume of wine served. One final nice thing about the 405 is that they always seen fairly busy, which creates an inviting atmosphere above and beyond the great work they've put into transforming the inside. Suffice to say, we'll be back soon.

Default not a good sign

Just past by the 405. There was a sign "Super Bowl Party with Free Pizza and Draught" and the place was nearly empty during the game.

I find many people not interested in watching the game. I'm glad I didn't as many folks claim it was pretty boring! So much for Downton Abbey!

I have only bee to the 405 once and was charged $5 for domestic draft beer which I felt was very pricey. Could of been an error but I didn't bother to inquire...just won't bother to go back. Anyone else find the draft prices high?

My wife and I went to the 405 Grill today and had the soup and half sandwich off the light menu. Soup was Turkey Vegetable and rice, very good with big chunks of breast meat. Wife had a half tuna melt, that was "deli" sized and very good. I had half a reuben in marbled rye and was very good and huge. So much for "light". We will go back.

So we did end up going back and had a much better experience. We sat at the bar and Dave the owner came over to check in with us. When he asked how everything was I told him about our previous experience. He told me no way we should of been charged $5 for a draft beer and that it was a mistake. He got me a few beers on him, was very sociable and recommended the half order of nachos! They were excellent. We have been back a few more times and always enjoy the 405.

Post Stopped in last night

We stopped in last night with our relatives from out of town. This has become our "go to" spot for lobster rolls. The lobster rolls are comprised of a generous portion of lobster in a toasted roll without the lettuce etc... A member of our party ordered the baked stuffed lobster and it was terrific.

Dave was affable as always.

They have done a nice job with 405. The menu is significantly broader than when they originally opened and the quality/quantity of food is consistently good.

They have lobster (baked stuffed, broiled, lobster rolls), prime rib, salads, haddock, shrimp etc.... They have a complete menu well beyond many local restaurants. They are by no means a sub shop.
