Me and my fiance came here while vacationing. The atmosphere was great along with the food. Pretty solid portions and the prices are fair. Not super cheap but not overly expensive. The service/staff was excellent. We'll definitely make a return trip.

We didn’t try the restaurant but went to the ice cream parlor twice during our visit. Everything was great and the staff was friendly. Typical prices for places like this.

Just found this place on the map. We had a party of 9, and they sat us quickly. The hostess was very pleasant, and our server was quick and efficient. Our food arrived in a timely manner.

Stopped by to cool off after going to the beach. The 2 scoop hot fudge sundae was $7.95....way overpriced and very stingey on the toppings. Could have gone to the grocery store and bought a whole gallon for way less! I looked over and saw...More

Group of 5 seated quickly. Steaks and seafood done well. Roast veggie sides were beautiful and delicious. KITCHEN and wait staff still seemed new to each other. I think this place has serious potential. Would try again.
