Saturday night 3 course Lobster dinner was beautifully executed. The Caesar's salad was crisp, fresh and topped with shaved cheese. The Lobster was fired, not boiled and the butter sauce was tasty. Finally, the cheesecake was delicious. All in all a great dinner out.

This used to be Jacks on Marion. I did not eat on this occasion, but a quick look at the menu indicated a simplification of the previous offerings to more of a bar/pub style menu. However, my experience at the bar was less than exciting....More

They seem to be trying to be an upscale restaurant but the atmosphere was somewhat cold and please remove the Heinz catsup bottles from the table if you want to be upscale. The Cuban sandwich was very good and the Grouper was cooked well and...More
