I have eaten here at least a dozen times and have never been disappointed. Tonight was the chicken breast stuffed with sun dried tomatoes. Fantastic.

The food was superlative with very fresh seafood and an excellent paleo menu. Gluten free for 90% of the menu. Staff friendly and knowledgable about their menu. What a find!

Excellent food and excellent service. They strive for healthy options and you know the chef is aware of what is healthy and what isn't.
