“Never had a bad meal here..”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

Had the Capellini Mar de Terra which is Fresh jumbo lump crabmeat and baby shrimp sauteed in olive oil, garlic and white wine with fresh sun-dried tomatos & asparagus... what a deal for only $20.00 ... also had the chicken marsala... very light.. with sauted veggies with garlic and olive oil.

“Quiet and quaint with excellent food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

On a recent business trip, a local resident recommended this restaurant for dinner. I am glad that we took her advice in coming here.

The staff is attentive and friendly. The waiter took time to explain in detail the nightly specials. Service was prompt and always kept waters and sodas full.

I enjoyed the crab cakes over angel hair pasta with spinach. Before the main course, I ordered a house salad. Very fresh. The main course had great flavor. And the bread that accompanies the meal was delicious. The crab cakes were generous in portion size with hardly any filler. The angel hair pasta and spinach were cooked to perfection. The other members of my party enjoyed lasagna and the seafood pasta. Both enjoyed their meals. We also split the cheese topped garlic bread.

It was refreshing to have dinner at this local business as opposed to the national chain restaurants. If I ever return to the area, I would certainly go back here for dinner.

“Consistently Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012

I have eaten here many times over the years. The food is consistently good, as is the service. The menu is extensive with many specials, covering a broad price range.

“BEST crabcake ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2012

My fifth trip here, 4th time for lunch. Always wonderful service and food. Consistent high quality and imaginative choices, particularly the specials. Today had the most tasty and beautifully presented crab cake ever - huge pieces of lump crab, very little filler, large portion served over perfectly prepared fresh vegetables. I should have photographed it! YUM YUM YUM.
