Review in a nutshell- nice place to dine with friends. Steaks, chops, chicken, seafood. Cute interior. Pricey. Tip- Do not bother with parking in front of the restaurant on the street side. Ample parking and entrance in the back.

The food was excellent, the service was excellent; and the restaurant was nicely decorated for Christmas. I thought it was over priced with the items on the menu. I found a Special that met my expectations in terms of price!!!!!!
