The Surf and turf was expertly prepared. Scallops were not over cooked. There was a long wait once our order was placed, but it was Saturday night.

Friday night, average busy. We got seated quickly, attended to quickly, and the waitstaff helped each other out wherever needed which made it nice for us and for them. Appetizer was great. Beer was cold.

Our waitress was pleasant, but we did not see much of her. We thought the portions were small, though the prices are not high. Our service was slow, and our food was just average.

Very local. I sat at the bar for a late lunch. The people were all locals. The Cuban Sandwich- although non-traditional - was excellent. They also have a couple of excellent local beers on tap.
