We had a great dinner. The stuffed pork chop was to die for. My wife had seafood, it was good, but it was not the stuffed pork chop (smile). We did not indulge in desert, but were very pleased with our first night in town.

Dropped in for a late afternoon meal and had a good experience. The place is not to far from the cruise port. Worth the walk. Staff is friendly and the food is really good. I would try this again.
