This is a small place but service is great and the food is delicious. Wear warm clothes if you visit on a cold night because it always seems a bit cool. However, that did not deter us from eating there 3 times in the same week when we visited.

This is an expensive restaurant but food is amazing. There isn't a dress code but people do seem to dress up when eating here.

We visited there last night for the Monday-Tuesday meal deal. The have a list of about 4 gourmet specials from which to order. The regular menu is also available but not part of that special. I had the Sheepshead fish special and my wife had shrimp and scallops over linguini. Being a special, the portions were a little smaller but... More

The building used to be a dump and the food not much better. New ownership has made it a treasure. Being off season made it easier to get into. The menu is varied and not all seafood. And the seafood is not all fried. Perhaps the best crab cakes I have ever had. Not sure there was any bread involved.... More

Small resturant so make a reservation and then sit back for an amazing evening. Steaks and seafood at their best. Generous portions. Generous cocktails and good wines. Service is personal and locals know all the servers. Don't expect elegance or fast service-good food cooked to order takes time, so plan on an evening with friends. A bit pricey for children,...

Our group of eight was referred here by some other family members, and we thoroughly enjoyed it. It is upscale and expensive, with a small menu. I believe there were only two seafood options. But, that said, what was on the menu was really, really good, and not unreasonable for this kind of preparation. Service was excellent. Our waitress, Amy,... More

Small but really great place. Read some of the bad reviews so I would be prepared for the worse. But it turns out the rave reviews were correct. Two for one specials were outstanding. Filet mignon was the best and shrimp and scallops were a close second. Make sure you make reservations but definitely give it a try.

We stopped here for lunch after an early church worship service only to find they only served from their brunch menu on Sundays. However, since everything had meat, and I am vegetarian, I thought we would have to leave. The waitress said the chef could easily replace the meat on the brunch with something else, so we stayed. I had... More

We went on the "BOGO" night. The coupon said buy one entrée get a second free. What it did not say was that once you got there, there were only four items written on a chalkboard to choose from that qualified. What was also off-putting was that the filet "special" on the board was $36, but the exact same meal... More

Very quaint restaurant. The seafood was great and very fresh. On Monday and Tuesday nights it's buy one get one free entree.. Definitely worth the trip.
