The Roundhouse Food Hall at The Village is now open, and we checked out one of the eight spots housed there: The Jetty.
The Jetty is a seafood joint that serves craft cocktails, lobster sliders, shrimp sliders, oysters, poke, sushi, sashimi and rolls.
East coast oysters will run you three bucks each, which is standard for DFW, but the item that raised both our eyebrows was the 7 dollar lobster slider. While many of the top restaurants in Dallas serve lobster rolls at around 35 bucks, this is a deal. The Jetty’s is “Maine style,” which is cold, mixed with remoulade and lemon on a brioche bun. The cost is low since they use previously frozen lobster meat, but at that price point it’s a steal, and the taste is on point. Get two for $13.
For sushi fans, they offer three kinds of nigiri and sashimi, while sticking with the popular choices of tuna, yellowtail and salmon.
In the roll category, The Jetty has five different options: Negihama (yellowtail), Avocado, Spicy Tuna or Salmon and California.
We sat at the comfy 24-seat U-shaped bar and tried some of their signature cocktails. The affable bartender Danny recommended the Yuzu Coco and the Lycheetini, which went well with our meal. The booze menu offers cocktails, craft beer, wine, bubbles and sake.

The Roundhouse Food Hall is open every day from 11:00 AM-8:30 PM. If you’re looking for a place where everyone can order what they like in a casual atmosphere, this is your spot.
