Canton: Annabel Lee Tavern

In Canton, I’ve heard plenty of good things about Annabel Lee Tavern. It’s got a nice Edgar Allen Poe vibe and in the same week I received two recommendations to try it there (in addition to the countless recommendations I’ve heard in the past.) My friend Laura has also been dying to try Annabel Lee Tavern so we made a plan to grab dinner on a Friday evening. Fortunately we were able to grab a seat at the bar even though the place was packed. Tip, call ahead and make a reservation!

After looking over the menu, we decided to split a few things. First was the Duck Fat Fries. We had both heard plenty of good things about them and they did not disappoint. The portion was HUGE and they were spiced/seasoned well. They’re also probably one of the most suggested items on the menu.

Next, we decided to try an order of the Crispy Brussels Sprouts. The brussels sprouts had a honey herb drizzle and were delicious. They weren’t over-fried and greasy, also the honey herb drizzle was nice and light and provided a nice sweetness to the vegetable.

Lastly, we decided to share the BBQ Chicken and Applewood Smoked Bacon Nachos. Now this dish was ridiculous and one of the best things I’ve eaten in a while. For starters, this portion was massive, I took home leftovers and had it for another meal and a half. Second, there was a ton of melty cheese covering all of the chips and the BBQ chicken was well marinated and added a nice flavor. And then how could anyone go wrong with bacon. If you’re at Annabel Lee Tavern, do yourself a favor and order the nachos.
