Wow, the most extraordinary Prime Rib and very best Alaskan Crab Legs in Southern California. We had the Clams in broth to start and they were outstanding. All served in a great old world atmosphere alongside the canal. Highly Recommended.

You can always expect amazing food and service and may run into some celebrities! A great selection and diverse menu, bar makes some very good cocktails. A dressy attire is preferred
