Never had a bad meal. The steaks are excellent and seafood is great. Good portions & excellent service. This is a must stop for us each year. Very rustic atmosphere and very "cape"!

Nothing special, but food and service were good. Able to get a seat for 5 without a reservation or wait as restaurant is very big. Nothing fancy. Fine night.
