Visiting our son at Salisbury University. We ended up getting food to go and it was super. We order the grouper topped with crab and a lemon butter sauce. We also order the surf and turf and it was excellent

Never hurts
We stopped going several years ago because even in the summer when the sun was still up, it was so dark in the dining room we couldn't see what we were eating. Is this still the ambience?
