We have been there four times in the past three years and have yet to be disappointed! The food is wonderful, and the atmosphere is just great. Will be going back again this September.

I frequently have dinner here to entertain folks we are recruiting. It has always been very good. This is the first time I have been wowed. I had the Alaskan halibut with little neck clams in a broth that was seasoned to die for.
