We had heard amazing things about this place and it did not disappoint! The appetizers & entrees were all superb and so was the service. We'd like to return again to try other items on the menu. Everything was wonderful!

The place is very cozy, great service and delicious drinks and food. Is about 2 miles right of I-75 south bound on SR 41 . Opens at 5:30pm. Very relaxing place to stop for dinner while you driving south.
