Great food but overpriced.

My wife and were seated without menus and had to wait sometime to get one. Apparently the host was nowhere to be found and we asked the bartender to get us a table, we had a reservation and were on time. Our meals were very good and our waitress was excellent but both the meals and drinks were... read more

We had been to this restaurant once before a few years ago, and it did not disappoint today. We were greeted warmly and served efficiently by a friendly waitress. I do not get to have pork belly very often, so we ordered the appetizer. It was very creative and delicious. For our entrees I ordered the crispy pork torta and... More

I love this place. Near the water and I can walk around the park reminiscing on my goals after a nice healthy snack.

Our first visit here since the new chef arrived. The service was great and the scallops done very well. Only negative was the risotto the scallops arrived on were Lukewarm at best. Only half a dozen other diners there, why or why would they serve it cold? Over priced also, be awhile before we go back again.

This was a great experience! Recommended by a local. Took a chance and was pleasantly surprised. We were greeted with a smile when we entered and escorted to the bar until our table was ready. Menu was local and fresh. So happy with our drinks and appetizer. The BEST pimento cheese and the most unbelievable country ham EVER! Our entrees... More

Great evening. Interesting specialty drinks to start. Appetizers were wonderful - pork belly for me pimento spread and ham for her. Entrees were shrimp/scallops over pasta and short rib. Both great. Too full for dessert.good wine selection. Natalie was superb as our waiter/advisor.

Started off with the pork belly appetizer. My family had never tried pork belly before and absolutely loved it ! I did as well. The combinations of different flavors and textures just in that one appetizer was superb. I had the hamburger off the lunch menu for the main part of the meal and it was very good, not superb,...

My husband and I had dinner here last night. Had not eaten here in a while, just due to busy schedules. Our server, Jennifer Washer, was excellent. Very knowledgeable, and proud of what she was serving, and well she should be. The meal was excellent, new menu has MANY gluten free items, and lots of new tasty items. I enjoyed... More

I had an amazing, super tender steak. It's expensive but worth it for a special date. The waterfront view is incredible
