The food was decent but a bit overpriced. The restaurant is old school fancy with a lounge in the back that has a fun band Midnight Confessions. It seems like a good night out for older couples without kids because you could dine then dance.

Food was incredible! Very decent portion sizes. My husband had a Cajun steak, I had the seafood pasta, both were delicious and came out in good time. Service was wonderful, very friendly staff. Great atmosphere with live music and dancing.

I had the grouper topped with scallops and butter sauce. Delicious. Cant wait to go back. Service was a tad slow, but they were super crowded. WORTH THE WAIT

Although the restaurant is more upscale than most in the area, causal dress is what most patrons wear. After all, most were on vacation, so we saw jeans, shorts and capris.

Yes they do. I would call them, however, when you get in town to see who is playing on which nights. I think things start around 7:30PM Best
