Such a great atmosphere and service from a busy staff. Everything seems to be custom ordered and the bread pudding is the ultimate! Oh my goodness!! I don't like bread pudding, but theirs is... superb!

I had one of the most enjoyable meals at the Scam. The service was superior and the food was fresh and extremely well presented. Would recommend this restaurant to everyone!

This place has a very cute setting. I loved the fact that the waiter's allow you to choose your own seat. The lighting was a little low which made it a great chill our bar but for family dinner with kids it was a pain. Just a fraction up on the lights would have made a difference. I've shared some...

Went with a group for a working lunch and enjoyed a very large and delicious Asian noodle salad with slices of tuna. Everyone else seemed happy with their lunch. They even had triple tail for the fish of the day! So wonderful to have our local fish on the menu! The service was friendly and helpful. Will certainly eat here... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my Gin and tonic at this restaurant/bar. I enjoyed the Filet ($29.99) and my garlic mash and asparagus. The Salad ($8.99) probably could have been a bit more hearty - but it was ok. The beer at this spot was also quite good out of the tap - I had a Fat Tire. The bar keeper was... More

Stopped by for a late nite dinner. Tried the bleu cheese burgers and a bottle of wine with friends. Lucky enough to get the window seat. Waitress was great and the food hit the spot. Nice atmospere for enjoying friends.

Very nice restaurant recommended by the hotel. We had the shrimp appetizer and red peeper with shrimp and andouille sausage soup for starters and both were very good. My Wife had the steak sandwich and I ordered the duck panini. Both were pretty good, but my panini was slightly over toasted, but otherwise was pretty good. I would definitely good... More

Our dining group was in town for a large convention. We were staying downtown in a very nearby location. For this reason, it was very nice to be able to walk to our dinner. I called several days in advance for a reservation which was a wise choice. We arrived to find our table the only table in the restaurant... More

Baby green salad with tuna tataki was good, but not much flavor to the tuna. Large piece of salmon on the sandwich, but the mango salsa was more like purée. They ran out of the soup special early on, but continued to advertise it. The "courtyard" atmosphere leaves a lot to be desired. However, friendly staff, good service.
