Had a nice family meal here recently. The choice was a little limited, but quality was very good. One of our party had scallops for a starter and they were by far the smallest scallops I have ever seen. He would have needed twice the...More

I've eaten here a few times and have never been disappointed. I love the burger and fries, although they also do great lobster. The music can be a bit loud, but it's a fun place and has a great cocktail bar.
