Dinner

My family had dinner celebrating my birthday. The food which included a sushi appetizer and several fish dishes was good although a bit overpriced. The service was good. The ambiance was friendly and inviting.

We went two nights here so this should tell you a lot! The first night we had a bad experience. They forgot my order and it took over an hour to get our food. However the sushi was great. So we went back the next night and there was no issues at all. Prices were good!

My daughter and I went for the Happy Hour. The drinks were great as was the food. The bartender (Laurel?) was fantastic. Thank you for your wonderful service!

We went on a rainy night, and they appeared to be understaffed. The waiter was covering our room as well as tables in the bar area, so it was difficult to find him when we needed him. The salads were pretty small for the price, soup was good, filet mignon was wonderful, sushi rolls good, shrimp and scallops over pasta... More
