We had four adults, one of whom eats vegan, and everyone had great dinners and drinks. This is our second time at the restaurant. We went once before and thought we got lucky, but when you can bring friends and everyone has a good experience,...More

Sllooooow, even when not busy. Staff poorly trained or clueless, not sure. Fish fry was greasy, a sign that they are not changing out their fry oil as they should. Food served was not what was on the menu. I should have turned around and...More

If you haven't been, you need to go. A definite hidden gem. The food is consistently delicious. The crab cake appetizer was perfect. The short rib, meatloaf, pork chop and lobster Mac were so good. Excellent presentation. Save room for their desserts. The best coconut...More

This is a favorite local restaurant for us -- their regular menu is great and specials are always superb. But they recently installed new "over-the-table" lighting that is awful! Now, I am short (4'10"), but the clear bulb in the metal overhead fixture was so...More
