After being seated, we waited 10 minutes and no one approached our table. Other tables were seated and waited on. We finally had to flag down a waiter, who turned out to be delightful and very accommodating. The lobster bisque was good, the tuna with wasabi was excellent. My husband enjoyed his mussels immensely. We asked about sitting outside, there... More

They are very generous with their Martinis and mine was made perfectly. The Mac and cheese which my son had was to die for. My daughter's filet was cooked perfectly as we asked. The service was great and the outdoor deck is where to eat on a nice night. Happily pleased!

Bad experience overall. My nephew's pizza came out after the rest of us were done. I had a hair in one of my wings. Disappointing. Food was okay when it eventually was served. We won't be coming back.

I'd call it fine dining if it had that. Maybe change the lighting a little, but for the price that was a great dining... More

One of my worst restaurant experiences, the service was slow, the drinks were bad, and the food was awful and expensive. I advise not to come here.

I recently had dinner here with adult family members. We went for their new $14.99 "early" dinner. This includes soup du jour or salad, wine/well drink/beer/soda, entree and dessert. You had a choice of about 8 entrees which included: ricotta ravioli in a mushroom,pancetta alfredo sauce (to die for!); chicken parm; steak; salmon... My dining partners had the chicken parm... More

The new chef, Matt, is incredible. Great soup, and his key lime pie is awesome! We have been a customer for over seven years ; it has been our date night place since we have lived down here. Sit at the bar (great bar food) and have a drink with Michael.

The food is consistent and the bartenders are friendly! We like the lunch specials and the brick oven pizza is delicious.

In the summer this place rocks the island. It can be crowded but that means people like the place. In the off season, the bar and restaurant are still great. Drinks and food are good. Servers are pleasant and fairly quick. There is usually entertainment making for a fun night. Stop by.
