Our server was very good, personable and attentive. The food selection was a disappointment. We found the food good , but not worth the price. We've eaten at several other restaurants in the area and our bill was no where near what we paid for...More

Service was good but food was just not good. Blue cheese dressing was bland with very little blue cheese. Mahi was overcooked and the jalapeño pecan sauce was tasteless. Swordfish overcooked. The whole meal was just "blah."More
