I really wanted to like this restaurant. Decor was great and staff was great. My dinner however was not to my liking - very bland - and not worth $43 USD. If I ever get down there again, I would consider giving it another try...More

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.

I took customers there one night and the next night I was invited as a guest. Both good experiences. An extensive wine list and very good seafood first night and equally good steak the second night.

Have visited many many times over the years. Menu never changes but food is normally quite good. The main fault is with the management/owners. On our latest visit we were not welcomed (even though we had a reservation) the front staff were chatting amonst themselves...More
