Another Enjoyable experiance

As a local, we have visited this restaurant numerous times. We had the pleasure of eating outside this time and it was very enjoyable. Service was very attentive and welcoming. The Tomato Bisque was great was once again...(previous visit, it was way below standards). The crab cake and braised... read more

Sunday is wings and Yuengs night. $6 for a dozen wings. Excellent wings. Wide selection of excellent choices of entrees and appetizers plus sandwiches. The mild wings are still very spicy. I ordered "naked". Of course the Yuengling is always great. Recommend.

Went with family. Waiter said "we are known for our crab cakes." We tried them and were very disappointed. Rest of meal was only fair and the service was not good. Save your money!

Appetizers - very good. Bacon wrapped shrimp and mussel dishes were great starters. Entrees - get the scallops with Brussel sprout hash. Amazing! Everyone else was disappointed. Beef and broccoli was bland. Jambalaya tasted like it was from a freezer bag. Crab cake with salad was plain nasty. Desserts - local ice cream and apple crisp were solid. Service -... More

Very nice atmosphere...attentive wait staff...wonderful local beers....and tasty food. Some things are just ok ( filet mignon)... better than expected (strawberry salad)... and burns down the roof (tomato bisque and key lime pie)!!! One more thing...very child friendly.

Our waiter was not particularly friendly and quite slow. (Jeff?) The food was OK and the proportions were fine but just average tasting. Had the prime rib, had to ask for horseradish none was offered. Apple crisp for dessert tasted like canned apples. Tomato Soup was good. Prices were reasonable. We watched the other waiter in the dining room be... More

Stop here for great food. Their menu is varied and it will fit nicely in your budget. I tried the lobster bisque and crab stuffed mushrooms and was glad I did. The food was delicious! Will definitely go there again when I am in the area. Children are welcome but I would advise that only adults go inside. They have... More

This place was recommended to us. Unfortunately we arrived when it was already late and dark outside and being from another state, we felt stranded. Prices were high. Food quality was just ok. My water glass had some dried food stuck on the inside of the glass. At one point I asked our waiter for another cloth napkin and he... More

This place was recommended to us by a shop owner ... This was the best dinner we had while on vacation. The view was amazing ... We sat outside and watched an Amish farmer plow his fields for 3 hours (we has drinks and then dinner). We told the staff that we were in no rush, and our waitress was... More
