Always a good choice, everything I've ever had here has been good. The waitstaff is very well informed and knowledgeable on all menu items and prep specifics. The loyalty program keeps us going back but we would anyways because of the food and service.

If your a calamari lover like me you gotta try this place! Its a small place just off of the main street, but well worth the effort to get there.

Extremely clean, great food, great service and the prices are very fair. The calamari appetizer is excellent as are the lamb chops. In fact, I have never had a bad meal there.

The only reason I dint give it 5 stars is the noise. We could barely hear each other talking as the room is loud. This was a Tuesday night....so busy, but... More

Things change over the years but the quality of meals never is less than perfect. Staff changes are expected in restaurants, but we have been lucky to see several of our favorites (Nicky, Monica, Mat & Robbie to name a few) on board for years. Chef Baldwin & Rose are going to expand the brand in the future with up... More

Sat at the bar and all the staff was very friendly. Food came out quickly and it's obvious why they win awards. The calamari was perfect and I'd definitely eat there again.

Awesome food, great service, always busy because of that. Want a quiet getaway dinner this is not the place. But fun noisy atmosphere makes it worth it
