Although the restaurant is more upscale than most in the area, causal dress is what most patrons wear. After all, most were on vacation, so we saw jeans, shorts and capris.
Is there music and dancing through the week? Will be on vacation there next week. Romantic date with husband. :)

Yes they do. I would call them, however, when you get in town to see who is playing on which nights. I think things start around 7:30PM Best
