This place is a must, every time we come here. Service is always great and the food is excellent! I love the garden salad with Italian dressing to start. Their home made potatoes are so delicious! Steak, shrimp, all so so good!

Perfect steak, perfect service. We wait through the summer so we don’t have to wait 60-90 minutes to be seated. Even with the wait, this place is worth a try,
