Chef Love and his team put out a great meal. Have eaten there several times for lunch and Dinner. Love the Fish and Chips and homemade ranch Dressing. The wine list is great and the bar is super for Bloody Mary's or any other cocktail. Not a fan of the eggplant or chicken parmesan but the chicken piccata and all... More

But I must say, I was almost forced to return to this restaurant to meet some friends AND I was very surprised the food was GOOD and WARM. So here I am telling every one who reads this to stop...

Took two friends to dinner; great steaks! Well one of my guests forgot to take his medicine with him, which needs to be taken before a meal. He left and went back to the house to get what he needed. Having already ordered our meal, I notified the waitress what had occurred. She immediately notified the chef, and the order... More

Menu selection was good and quite varied. The wait staff was knowledgeable and helpful in making meal selection. Food came very well prep[ared and was to be savored. I had the fruit de mare on marinara.

A nice place to eat after a hard day in the spring water pools. The steak was good and the portions are large. There is a good selection of wine. Staff take great pride in their restuarant.
