A LITTLE EXPENSIVE FOR MEDIOCRE FOOD

I came here for a late lunch and it was pretty empty. I order the Mahi Mahi as a chef special with mashed potatoes on the side. I wasn't overly impressed. However, the service is very friendly and the owner was very pleasant to chat with after my meal. Perhaps I would order a pasta dish next time... read more

Portions were generous but not excessive. The... More
