“Great for lunch!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

A friend and I enjoyed lunch here recently. The fried oysters appetizer is sensational and is a light lunch by itself. The service is superb - attentive, but not bothersome. Highly recommend.

“One of the "In" places to go”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

The menu is good and they have great sides. Their sweet potato fries and mashed califlower are among the best with their fillet. The chopped salad is note-worthy as well.

“Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Average food and VERY HIGH NOISE LEVEL. Some dishes can be good, but you cannot count on it. We have gone there off/on for years, and it is unreliable.
