We heard that this place was good. Our food seemed to be the typical Sysco food that most restaurants use. The waitress kept telling us how great the food was. It didn't even come close to all of the hype we have heard.

Went there with family and friends for dinner. Enjoyed a Combo Platter with clam strips, shrimp and fish. The CLAMS were the best and recommend that as a "must have" the other items were good but that should not be missed when in the area.

Great service, and great food. We go there frequently. My husband says their clam chowder is the best around. The peanut butter pie is amazing.
