Ate lunch here and had a huge piece of lightly bread fish with homemade fries. The fish melted in my mouth. It was the best piece of fish I have ever had. The portion was generous as were the fries. We ate in the bar section as the dining room was closed.

My wife and I made our first trip this past Saturday night... And we are glad we did. The restaurant is very charming, with a warm atmosphere. Stephanie our waitress was very attentive and knowledgeable on the menu. She made some great recommendations. The owner, Lori, stopped by and chatted with us for a few minutes. I started with the...

The location from where we were staying was a 15-20 minute drive. Once we arrived, the service was welcoming and prompt. Everything that we had was very good. I had the salmon and would certainly have it again. Our server was friendly and very open with what was worth ordering and what wasn't preferred as much. For what we received,... More

We stumbled across this restaurant by chance on our way back from Orlando. It's located in a strip mall but don't let that deter you from giving it a try. I had Herb Crusted Scottish Salmon. The salmon was crispy and very tasty. My wife had a dinner special that was very similar to a pot roast with carrots, potatoes... More

Great atmosphere with yummy specials of the day (but the regular menu is certainly worth trying as well).

We've been here several times and the food is always good and the variety is always interesting. There's always a nice set of seafood selections and a few hearty meat dishes. This time around we went with the meat dishes - braised sirloin tips in a Greek style with dumplings and Short Ribs with an amazing polenta side. The food... More

This was our second time visiting this restaurant. The atmosphere is lovely, and the service excellent. We started with a house salad which was big enough to share. I ordered bouillabaisse which was very flavorful. The sea food (shrimp, scallops, mussels,squid & fish) were perfectly cooked and the tomato broth was out of this world. It was also served with...

My husband had boulliabaise which was good with salad. I had steak that was very good - tender, tasty w/asparagus. Overall a solidly good meal, especially for the price.

One of our favorite go-to, chef-owned restaurants. A good variety of food and drink; comfortable bar with evening entertainment on weekends, more formal dining room if you're in that mood.
