“Great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2012 via mobile

We were on our way home from VA and decided to stop here for dinner. I looked at trip advisor and saw it was #1. The parking is a little difficult with all parking being on the street and some roads are one way. It sits on the corner and I would've never noticed it if we didn't know where we were going. When we walked in, we to strange looks becaus it seems like a local spot. The building is older and smelled a little musty. We got sitted right away in a nice little booth. The menu doesn't have description of the meals but our waitress explained it to us. I had shrimp and crab meat with lemon garlic sauce. The crab meat was amazing with the sauce but the shrimp had a chlorine taste. I was too tired to complain and the crab meat made up for it. The dinner salad was way above average and the mashed sweet potato was delicious. My husband got scallops and shrimp with a sweet and sour yet spicy sauce and he really liked it. I would definitely come back to try their various martinis. Overall it's worth a stop.

This is our old stand by . Never fails, great food, service, and martinis. Really can't go wrong, although veal is outstanding.

“A special place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2012 via mobile

Stopped here on our way back from Florida. What a pleasant surprise. VERY broad menu to satisfy any taste. Great martinis. Started with the fresh romaine house salad with a balsamic dressing. The wood fired Delmonico steak was as good as Smith & Wollensky in Manhattan - at half the price. Vegetable medley perfectly prepared. Side of Angel hair pasta with an excellent marinara. Nice atmosphere with a great selection of music in the background. Service was top notch. Don't miss it if you are in the area.

“Very Good Food!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2012

Awesome food at down to earth prices.

The atmosphere is not like the bigger "Steak" places, but the prices are affordable and the food is amazing!

Must get the surf and turf when you are there!!
