“An excelent dining experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

As soon as we entered we were greeted and escorted to our table. It is best to have a reservation in the evening. WE were surprised by the extensive menu and the size of the entrees. We had enough food for two meals. Service was excellent and the prices were reasonable. We have been to the area several times and this was the first time we visited this restaurant. it will be on our list for the future.

“consistant quality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

Very good food and very nice bar. Very busy year round especially in season. Call ahead when possible or you could have an hour or more wait. This my overall favorite restaurant when considering the food and the price. I would rate a five considering all aspects of a restaurant. This includes the meal, the cost, the environment, and the location. Good service too.
Ask for Patrick he is efficient @adorable.

“Busy!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

We arrived at 6 on a Sunday with no reservation. Hostess staff were quick to find us a table outside - the preferred seating when it's warm enough. Server took a little too long to find us, although her assistant kept us well stocked with bread (delicious) , and water. Server eventually arrived, apologized for the wait, and did a great job thereafter. There was mixed reaction in our group to the food. The pear salad was a definite hit, and the chicken piccata well received. Clam linguini was not as good as on previous visits..coconut shrimp was average. All in all, a nice dinner, but not up to expectations, based on previous visits.

“VERY POOR SERVICE”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

My husband & I had a late lunch there today. We had the worst service!!! We shared a salad and large pizza. I had to ask twice, for plates so we could eat our food. My husband sat through the entire meal with a empty water glass. We then had to flag down our waitress and ask for our check. She never came back, so we took the bill up to the hostess! It was very frustrating!!!!Other than that, the food was good.

“FABULOUS FOOD & STAFF (OWNERS TOO!)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

This is one of the best values in the Valley. Great food, great atmosphere and a very delightful GM named Willie. The owners are super kind and work hard to make the community they do business in a better place. If you are hungry and want good food prepared quickly, this is the place to go.
