This place is great. Everyone in our party of 4 agreed that the food was delicious and flavorful. I had the butternut squash ravioli and it was wonderful. The menu is varied and creative so we all found something to order easily. The ambiance of the place, the serving staff (Tyler was our waiter and did a super job). We... More

We went to Salt Creek Beach on Labor Day and did a 4.25 mile hike before we went to the restaurant. When my Sister in Law and her son finally arrived we were hungry. They had previously eaten there before and we had passed by it many times on our way to Salt Creek Beach. We weren't disappointed! I had... More

My friend and I were celebrating our birthdays and enjoyed every moment. The service, food and atmosphere were perfect for the occasion. Our waiter Cullen was the best! He was very personable and attentive.

This restaurant has a lively bar and a nice restaurant. Very casual, also outdoor patio. Food was very good, would definitely go back again. Has something that would appeal to almost anyone.Make a reservation to sit on the deck, it looked really nice.

We loved all our meals. So pleased to have gluten free options. The kale and quinoa salad was wonderful and very flavorful. Pork chop was moist and tasty with delicious sides. A lovely vacation dinner. Highly recommended.

Positive: Our waitress Katelyn, a hard-working, cheerful lady. We started with the beignets, the waitress warned us they were not the French-style or New Orleans-Style (I was expecting something like you would find here: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/paula-deen/french-quarter-beignets-recipe.html The beignet's here were more like hush puppies: (http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hushpuppy). One or two were undercooked, our waitress, upon seeing this, took them back, asked if we... More

The atmosphere is woodsy and plenty of seating inside and out. We ate inside while a private patio party was taking up outside. We were seated right away early Sunday evening in the bar area probably because we had no reservation. Greeted by Tony who checked on us enough to be pleased. We ordered wedge salads, one with shrimp and... More

The only reason I didn't rate this restaurant a five is that the calamari was chewy and the service, though friendly and informative, was slow. I loved everything else about it. We had dinner on the patio while listening to live acoustic music. There are ample heat lamps on the patio so it is quite comfortable sitting outside even on... More
