Had scallops tonight - carbonara? What a great idea. So delish! My husband had the baked Mediterranean cod - also delish. We love coming here because of the food and the atmosphere. Great all round!

This place is a gem. It is our "go to" for family events or taking out our friends. The burgers are divine. The lamb chops and salmon are cooked perfectly. Brian, Dan and staff make every meal special.

We like to say, "If you think you look good, we think you look good!" We don't mandate any specific attire, but some of our customers enjoy getting "dressed up" for dinner.
