I have been coming here for many years and the food is fabulous. Tables upstairs are a little close together and the noise level is a little louder than I like, but the food more than makes up for it. Downstairs is like a little bistro and you can see the cooking that is being done. Their homemade blue cheese... More

I had the fried oysters, so plump juice ,sweet, crisp, done to a turn perfection. the tartar sauce was made in house, but not needed, the oysters... More

Fresh, simply prepared seafood. You can tell that so many customers are regulars. The staff is super friendly and accomodating. I had the panko crusted swai with lemon butter. So crunchy and delicious! My wife had snapper and shrimp in scampi sauce. Huge portions and delicious. Reasonably priced.

We have been coming here for years but this last experience was a disappointment. Crab cakes were mushy and the sauce that came with them was simply some mayo and spices...not palatable at all. The Swai had no sauce and the sweet potatoes were soggy and gross!

Just returned from a fabulous early New Year's Eve dinner... Everything was perfect... The service and the food were exceptional. My husband had a delicious steak (which is a real treat for him, cardiac patient, so only gets steak for special occasions). And, he couldn't have been more pleased !!! Me? Alaskan King Crab legs - also a rare treat... More

I only had an appetizer, but it was superb. I really mean superb. The restaurant hadn't changed from the days in the 1950's and 1960's as far as warmth and friendliness. Our waitress kept us entertainment with a fun patter of chatter.

Thank Linda C
