Aside from the 5 or 6 gnats that circled our food as we dined the evening was somewhat nice. My wife enjoyed her sole. I questioned her, she is from the school which says if you have nothing good to say, say nothing. Her non-response said it all. I've been told I am a bad "orderer". This time I know... More

We went for lunch last weekend. We were in the mood for seafood. We had oysters on the half shell that were tasty and fresh. Sadly, they had pieces of shell in almost all of them. We also got calamari and it was disappointing. The coating was not at all crispy. The good was it was rings and tentacles. The... More

We had an excellent dinner. Staff are very accommodating. We did not feel rushed through the meal and enjoyed a very relaxing evening. Swordfish was cooked perfectly.

From making reservations for two, to walking in the door and being greeted with a smile, to a perfectly reserved table and then end up with the best service, we have no regrets.

Went here for a birthday dinner with my mom, stepdad, and brother. Such amazing food! We started with mussels and calamari, both delicious and large portions. We had burgers and salads as well, all large, filling, and delicious. They have a large selection of cocktails, and a long wine list as well. The owners are attentive and friendly, and the... More

Nina P - Thanks for the review! Sorry your salad got "stolen" from you before you finished! An over zealous busser! If you like raw bar, try our Oysters Alaska - they are great spin on the traditional oysters on the half-shell. Our best in 2016, Andy More

We were a group of 6 that walked in without a reservation on a Saturday night after leaving another restaurant on the green where our reservation was messed up. The parking lot was packed, but we received a warm greeting and were seated within 15 minutes. The wine list is thorough and extensive. We ordered a beautiful albarino and a... More

Two of us went to dinner there with a Groupon. My date did not like the clam chowder, claiming that there were more potatoes than anything else. My dinner was just okay.
