Ate there twice. I wasn't that impressed. The chicken was good, but a friend ordered a crab cake and said it was terrible. Haven't been back.

We haven't been to this restaurant in over a year and this time it was disappointing. I had the crab cakes at $30.00 there were two but I doubt they weighed 6 ounces together.. They were tasty but there are other places that have better for less money. We were a large party of 12 but were treated well and... More

Food was delicious. Location is very hidden. Multiple options for seating from outside sheltered patio to unsheltered patio. Everything was good but they must switch their napkins because it left lint all over our parties clothing.

Took a large group from work here today and the service and food were excellent as usual. A new summer menu featured many of the old favorites plus some lighter fare. Portion size still is more than ample but some of the salads are not quite as large as they were. That's a good thing.

Went for a night out with an old girlfriend. Conversation was flowing and so was the wait staff. Lexie our waitress was friendly, fast, & on point!! Salads and dessert were great! Portions were huge. Wine was chilled but overpriced. And the meat entrees were over cooked despite ordering them medium. Otherwise, worth a visit for the ambiance and non-meat... More

I have eaten here several times in the past few years. The food is always fresh and delicious. Our service has always been good. They prices are on the high side of what we like to spend or we might eat here more often. On the plus size the portions are large, so I always get tomorrow's lunch in addition... More
