The host was less than accommodating, but we persisted and agreed to sit outside on the deck. We had a great server named Rachel, she took great care of us. The food was great, and the portions were more than adequate. Would highly recommend.

I have never had a bad meal there. The servers are always attentive and pleasant. Clearly the owner has been very selective when hiring his staff. Ryan makes excellent... More

The food was well prepared. We had mussels with white wine, great garlic bread. Lobster rolls were great. The fradiablo had olives on it which was a nice touch. The food was very good. Our waitress was not accommodating and rude at times.

This place is a joke. I have an extensive restaurant backgroun an owner of one as well. The plates were dirty, the silverware was unpolished. Where we sat I could see black mold along server station sink and soda machine. My wife found some sort of insect floating in her drink, she then was scared to drink anything else. I... More

This was by far one of the worst dinner experiences I have ever had. Service was terrible. Our waitress didnt inform us it was happy hour, didnt tell us about any specials, or even bother to ask us if we wanted anything to drink. She was also super slow and the place wasnt even busy. The food was mediocre at... More

I am very sorry you did not have a pleasant experience. It seems everything must of been wrong which is not likely or normal. I assure you the steaks, fish and calamari are fresh, not frozen. I guess once something caused your ill feeling it all boomeranged. Again I am sorry. More
