Wonderful steak and seafood. Never feel rushed, but server very attentive. Food deeply flavorful. Nice noise level for enjoying an evening with friends or special occasion.

Very good menu selection. Nice atmosphere, friendly wait staff. I had filet oscar...beef was well prepared... crab, not so much...but not terrible...I guess it should be considered it's a 1000 miles from an ocean. Over all very nice experience.
