Live piano player. Great decor, especially the new side of the place. Excellant menu choices. Kids and adults all loved what they got. Fish was amazing.

The menus contains Heilman's award winning Fried Chicken as well as delicious Wisconsin veal (my fav) and a full bar. While close to the beach, I would not call this a "beachy" restaurant. It has a few dishes not seen on more modern menus, yet...More

The steak and lobster were both delicious and perfectly prepared. Our server, Christopher, was outstanding. He was very attentive, offered excellent suggestions and ensured every aspect of our evening was perfect. We enjoyed the piano player as well and look forward to dining here again.

Restaurant was opened in 1948! Homemade everything . Service was very attentive. Calming and relaxing experience for sure. For $19.48 I got the Southern fried chicken with all the trimmings. It was a steal for sure. Loved this place and would return.
