We had a couple of the specials including Eggs Benedict with soft-shell crab instead of ham, and squash-flower with pico de gallo, etc. Excellent food.

If you haven't been here, or if it's been awhile, come! Delicious entrees. Great choices. Our waiter, John, was pleasant, polite, attentive. Great ambiance. New rooms that are lovely. Great music. Amazing bartender with old and new favorites. An overall delightful experience. Visit soon!
