The service & dining room are good The food is not. The dinner special roast was dry and over cooked. The house special "Seafood Pancake" tasted of leftover condensed seafood chowder. Would not recommend this dinner when so many other options are available

Food and service were incredible. Went here on a recommendation and have no regrets. Although attached to a bar, it is a fine dining experience.

Stopped in for dinner with my mother while on vacation, she'd been here several months before while traveling with my Dad so she recommended it. The place is quaint and not overly packed in with people. The food was excellent, my mother had a steak and I the fish, which is a daily catch. Soups there were also fresh and... More

Yes, the food is great. Hope you have the good fortune to have Leseck or Brendon as your servers. These gentlemen epitomize classic European service, incredibly efficient and cordial. Their warmth and good humor made our dining experience a memorable one. We will definitely be back!
