We’d never stayed in Monroe before, so we made a reservation at the Hampton Inn there. The room was okay…but we didn’t realize that this was an older hotel, without indoor corridors – so all the doors opened to the outside like an old-fashioned motel.
We had supper at the Mohawk Tavern (above), which was recommended for their seafood, and it was *excellent* – I liked that the interior hadn’t been redone in ages which gave it a lot of character, and the food and service were great. Next time, we want to try Ray’s PeGe and The Chateau.
(above:) Behind the Mohawk is a pile of oyster shells – they’ve got the back parking lot paved with them.
