Son of a Gun
8370 W 3rd St
Son of a Gun is an interesting name for a restaurant. It is owned by the owners of Animal restaurant.
Across busy 3rd St. from D'Amore's Pizza Son of a Gun is a small plates seafood restaurant, though one of it's most popular dishes is a fried chicken sandwich. The interesting thing for me is the only sign for Son of a Gun is the sign you see on the door, in the above picture. There is no sign on the face of the building. I understand they have been opened for about two years, so why isn't there a sign?
Son of a Gun is very small restaurant with a big community picnic table as it's centerpiece. It's a popular restaurant that is very busy. Our wait time was 30 minutes and they said we could go to the bar called The Churchill a few doors down, while waiting for our table. It is a good suggestion because the bar inside Son of a Gun is very small and all the chairs were taken.
Service is very good. Our server was very nice, helpful, and friendly. As a matter of policy they recommend two people splitting five dishes, which I thought is a bit much. If we didn't order the fried chicken sandwich or the sandwich was smaller, I would agree with the five dish recommendation.
I was impressed with Son of a Gun and would return but it would be for a special occasion instead of a regular dinner.
