Fantastic BYOB restaurant. No reservations, but worth the wait if you encounter one. Food is always excellent. They're owned by the same people that own Elizabeth's, but the food is much better prepared and presented. A great little place that could easily become your favorite.

First off this is a small restaurant. We usually sit in the back room. We had been in Texas for 2 1/2 months and wanted some good seafood. I have had the best scallops in my life at this restaurant. The bread they serve you...More
