Our waiter made the meal. He provided expert suggestions and insights on the local options. As we conversed with him, we found out he has been at the restaurant for 39 years... since it first opened. You don’t run into that kind of longevity anymore....More

Very good waiter. Personable and efficient service. Atlantic lobster tail was perfectly done not over cooked. My sole was nicely breaded and very moist. The prices were very reasonable price for two people drinks and entree was about $80.
