This place has permanently closed. Their Facebook page and website are still up. Their OpenTable presence still exists and is still taking reservations but trust me it is permanently closed. They did not do the courtesy to cancel all pending reservations and continue to accept new ones via OpenTable.

Don't know what's happened but it's no longer on my list. Used to be our go place for drinks and bar nibbles. It's dirty and the bar is barely stocked. The drink menu is stained with food spills. There is no bar food menu. The "go to fav" cocktails taste watered down. Huge disappointment. Reminds me of a roadside bar... More

We live local, so it is a shame. The food flavors are delish! But, it has been a disappointment again, This place just can't get it together, Sparse liquor shelves, extremely long waits for food 1+ hours, incomplete plates delivered because they don't have all of the components for dishes on the menu. I work in the food service industry,... More

This was my first time to the Eastern Shores and a local friend took me to dinner. Not knowing what to expect I was blown away. Being a graduate of the CIA I like to think I know a little bit about food. We were seated right away upon arrival in a cozy dining room that we shared with a... More

Very good restaurant. Room was a bit dark, but interesting. And the truth is that while I remember that we enjoyed our meal and the restaurant, no one dish was so memorable that I can readily describe it now, several months later. But we don't like everyplace and I know we made a mental note that we would come back.

The server was knowledgeable, attentive and accommodating. The food however was significantly below our expectations. My partner had the Striped Bass which was nice but it was topped with a Lobster Sauce which was awful, bitter and much too strong for the fish which totally spoiled her meal. Her vegetables were significantly overcooked and close to being burnt. My "slow... More

I have visited this restaurant on a number of occasions with friends and family. The food is excellent. The restaurant decor is dated but don't let that stop you from eating here. You have to try their signature dish...paella. It is yummy. Other must haves are the lobster app and the mushroom ravioli. For a special treat, try the chef's... More

I made a reservation online with OpenTable for myself and my partner. OT did not say anything about a prix fixe menu but that is what it turned out to be. I ordered a beet salad which was good but nothing special. I was going to order the lamb but was told they were out and short ribs were being... More
