Wonderful setting in a lovely 1800's mansion. Our dinner was very good, but the crab stuffed mushrooms were exceptional! The service was very good and food was presented in a timely manner. We will definitely return!

The seafood is always covered in butter and doesn’t seem fresh. Seafood lovers will be disappointed. My son did love the crab legs, though, and the salad bar is good.
