Stopped here for some wine and appetizers. Crostinis and meat tray were fine. They were busy and service was quite little slow. Friendly, but slow, especially to be at the bar and hard to get acknowledged.

You can't beat these local Oysters, and for a buck you'll eat your fill. The ultimate crostini with truffle sautéed filet mignon, Portobello, olive tapenade and pesto is a must have as well. They have a real fine Merlot, the cheapest is the best! Fine...More
