Just the place if you are tired of the beach scene. Good food, lovely service, and charming setting. Great for couples, quite loud in the piano room. Not for children.

We had a wonderful dinner in this charming restaurant. I ordered a Small Caesar salad and the Salmon as my main course. My husband had the same salad and the Duck entree. The dinner was delicious and our waitress was very courteous.
