Passports has excellent food. On this particular visit we had swordfish, fish tacos, scallops with pesto cream and blackened salmon. Everything was outstanding. The pooovers are always a plus.

We enjoyed a nice dinner at Passports. its a cozy spot with great hot huge fresh popovers instead of bread. The meal was good as well as the service. Call ahead for reservation especially if you are more then 2 for dinner.
