    We had heard that the penalty box was under new ownership, management, and had a new menu and reopened recently. We ordered the Maine Mac which is mac n cheese with lobster. The Maine Mac is heavenly. Every bite is amazing. It warms your soul while hitting every pleasure center in the brain. It's super cheesy but light, there is hunks of lobster that are cooked to perfection.

    The new Mac and cheese selections are nothing short of amazing and the wings we're fantastic. I'm also in love with the new fries as they are crispy, with a slight spice to them, But clean finish, not oily.

    We happened upon this place. The food was so good and very well priced for the quality and amount. Staff was very friendly. Had the pork tenderloin sandwich and French onion soup. Delicious. Try it!!!
