Nice decor, even though our waiter thought the building had been a restaurant of some kind for over 50 years – about the age when restaurants begin to look a little tired and dated. Lovely food. We’d had an abominable day in 95-degree heat. In...More

We had previewed the menu prior to our arrival (6pm reservation) and were pleasantly surprised to have a Prix Fixe option which included the entrees we wanted. The food was of good quality and great value. The interior and views from the deck were wonderful.
