Anytime there's a farm to table restaurant, we make sure we pay it a visit. From the salmon with Huckleberry sauce to the pork and sweet potato tacos, every bite we moaned and groaned.

For appetizers, the crabcake was meaty and not fishy. And the mulligatawny soup reminded me of the soup on Seinfeld- unbelievable!

We had the pan fried oysters and fish tacos that were very good for lunch. Service was excellent. We ate outside on a lovely afternoon. The place is very overpriced for lunch. The prices seem to be similar to prices in larger cities like New York.

Food excellent and friendly service. The mussels with bread was wonderful. I enjoyed it thoroughly. Other family members ordered salmon and steak and they were wonderful too.

Good food and good service. Wasn't very busy on a Friday morning. Would definitely eat here again to try more food options. We had the fried egg sandwich and the crab scramble. Both were very good. Wasn't in love with the potato pancake it came with, but my husband was.

The front desk attendant at the hotel I stayed at recommended this place. I can't remember the exact name but it was a gorgonzola cheese burger and my sister had the veggie tacos. Would definitely go back to this place.

The food and serve were excellent here. I ordered the Cha-Cha Burger! It was amazing! Also we got a bottle of Moscato wine! Perfect ending to a fabulous lunch. The overall atmosphere was wonderful and pleasant. Upbeat music playing and I just felt cozy and comfortable.

Friendly service. Red wine came in a champagne flute with apologies for the glass. We thought we would be getting fresh, delicious seafood, but it was diner fare, in my opinion. Would not go back.

Lucky to find this quaint hopping restaurant by asking Google! Sushi night was anchored by fish flown in from Hawaii that day. Menu is varied with many gluten free items. I had green curry w catfish, Bok Choy, sweet potatoes and black beans - it was as tasty as it was visually appealing! Busy night, so we sat at the... More

Tonight we dined in this small eclectic establishment. We were referred here by our hotel clerk. She told us it's the best restaurant in town. She might be right but we haven't eaten any place else. While we were searching the menu, yummy looking dishes were passing by our table. Made it very difficult to make a decision but all... More
