Had a fundraising meeting with 2 friends. We asked for a private table and the restaurant could not have been more cooperative and give us a quiet table in a corner. The quality of the food and service was outstanding. The restaurant is very clean, the help is extremely friendly, and the menu is excellent. I highly recommend this to... More

My lobster & clam mozambique (a special today) was exquisite. The well balanced flavors were tantalizingly subtle. A delicious treat for MY tastebuds. Whereas my wife's steak was a "in your face" full flavor delight . And forget any apt description for the deserts. The wife's maple Crème brûlée (another special) was unworldly sinful, and my key lime pie was... More

The food is excellent with multiple favors and a nice menu. You can tell the food is fresh and homemade. Service can be understaffed and slow at times but staff is very friendly and willing to substitute or make food to your wishes. Nice wine and drink list as well as deserts. Only negative was the shrimp cocktail which were... More

What a delightful little cozy place. We loved it. Our waitress was prompt and efficient. Our appetizers were delicious, soup and salad were tasty fresh, and seafood entrees were scrumptious. Sorry We had no room for dessert.. but they sounded good. We promise to come back soon maybe even try for the sunday brunch. Keep up the great menu.

We had been to this restaurant in the past and it was always consistantly good. We had not returned this year but ate there last week and returned this weekend as the food was so good. Definitely worth a visit. The only down side it that it is quite noisy.

Server was excellent! Great personality and very patient as we decided what we wanted to order. There were 6 of us. Each of us got a different meal and all meals were delicious. Small room with nice bar. Once the place filled up, it became extremely noisy and hard to hear each other talk. I wouldn't rush back but may... More

Excellent lunch and brunch spot. Never had a bad experience, even with new staff who didn't quite get it right, all was sorted out without any fuss. A really super place.

We walked in the front door and stood for five minutes. Nobody seated us, so we assumed that we were to seat ourselves, which we did. Eventually the owner came barreling in from the back and excoriated us for sitting down "when she might have had reservations!" She then lectured us that we should have come in the back (well,...

Returned here for dinner on Valentines day after having lunch and brunch on two separate days before. It is best to make reservations in advance as it is a small room with a bar and smaller rooms off the back. Food is homemade and the specials change daily. Moderately priced but well worth it.

Thank Luann T
