Wife and I went for dinner. She was in the mood for a steak, and we chose this place because we haven't been her before. They have an outside porch, but the place is on a busy highway, plus they had a band playing, so we went inside because I wanted a bit more quiet. Well, it's not exactly quiet... More

Delicious food, GREAT Band - PENTA playing, good service! The manager apparently is a bit nervous for the patrons when the band was playing...they sounded fine and if people wanted a quiet venue there are plenty to choose from within a five mile radius. We enjoyed the liveliness and the food was stellar!

All food in my party was good and those around seemed to like theirs as well however the sausage pancakes came out cold and were stiff like a plate. I would go back but would change... More

We dined recently on a Friday night with a family group of 17, including two children. The staff eagerly took our reservation a week ahead and seated us within 10-15 minutes. The wait staff was very attentive. Everyone enjoyed the excellent artichoke dip & calamari appetizers. The chicken piccata was extremely good. The sirloin steak was very good. The veal... More

Great dinner. The shrimp and grits are delightful. Has great appateasers. The white chic cake is the best. Very good food.
