A touch of hip, class and cool in a town where that’s not always easy to come by. Delicious spicy shrimp appetizer and a very good fish main course in a stylish atmosphere.

A couple of us had Dean's Delight that has filet, shrimp and pasta. It was incredible. The salad was very tasty with mixed greens, cucumbers and cherry tomatoes. The beer selection, while limited, did have some interesting options that we enjoyed.
