Excellent dinner in a relaxing setting. Fireplace in the dining room kept us comfortable. The fish was prepared well for us all. There is a separate dining room from the bar area.

Very clean, well kept place. The menu was varied. The crab cake appetizer is excellent! The side order of grilled asparagus was also excellent. Their homemade chips are seasoned and very good. I had a steak sandwich with sauteed mushrooms and onions with cheese. The...More
