Excellent upscale lobster roll served on brioche. Good sides and attentive service. It was the end of Race Week so it was not too crazy.

Dead Eye Dick's was very fun. It's pretty casual, the food was ok, not the best. I had swordfish and it was thin and dry, but sides were fantastic and others I dined with really loved their food. the desert was pretty amazing tho.
