Lobster bisque soup was the best I've ever had. Delicious! I had a beef, spinach grilled cheese sandwich with onion straws. Very good and different. Service was excellent. I have been there before and will return.

Dirty wings were the best we’ve ever had and the chicken nachos were delicious, great seasoning on the grilled chicken and served with ample jalapeños, sour cream and salsa. Great service provided by Ryan. Will definitely return great for couple or group.
