“Very good but loud”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

We visited on a Saturday with a part of 6 and the wait was 25 minutes. The staff, young females as far as we could tell, were friendly, but not very knowledgeable regarding the menu and bar. For a bar a big detractor was no draft beer. I had a seafood primavera with a marinara sauce that was too sweet. The staff was attentive, albeit clueless with nearly every question we asked and had to check with her manager.

Overall, a pleasant place to eat, but there are better options.

“Consistent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

Another great lunch at this busy establishment. We started with the blacken chicken quesadilla which comes with a black bean and corn salsa. Husband had the chicken cheese steak sandwich with the stuffed potatoes. I tried the Mahi Mahi over Brussels sprouts which were delicious. The Mahi was a lunch special which came with the lettuce wedge for only $13.00. Eating here is a sure bet. Once Memorial Day comes, the parking is difficult but worth the trouble.

“What a disappointment...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013 via mobile

After reading the reviews to this place we decided to give it a try. We expected great food and especially great seafood. Started out with shrimp cocktail, it was 6 shrimp for 13 dollars...PRICEY! My blackened salmon was bland which was a first. Usually any fish that is blackened is very tasty. The jasmine rice it came on top of was also quite bland even though it had what appeared to be an assortment of herbs in it. Some parts of the rice were undercooked as well. The highlight of the meal were the stuffed potato cakes which were essentially mashed potatoes with chesse and bacon deep fried. The chicken parmesan was okay. It could have used some more sauce to keep it moist. Some of the pasta was not fully cooked and therefore hard. We have had better food from other restaurants in the area. For two meals and an appetizer it was over $50. Thats pricey when the food is just mediocre at best.
