Visited after a wonderful trip to Crying Eagle Brewery, was not disappointed by both beverage and food selections. Solid wait staff and excellent food rounded out by a great full bar and beautiful location.

Very good atmosphere- crab and shrimp bisque was good but not hot enough when served- had an excellent spinach salad with chicken- done well and very tasty. Felt food was on the pricey side and service was average.

I waited 15 mins and never saw a server. I finally had to wave someone down and she graciously took care of me. The food is good.
