High priced for the way the waiters were dressed and the steaks were a little fatty. The shrimp were huge in the shrimp cocktail but one still had part of the vein in it and the sauce was very bland. For the cost I expected...More

Excellent food. Specialty is bluepoint oysters Went on Mother's Day and although they had a limited menu, (as do most restaurants on holidays) everything was delicious. We did not feel rushed at all and each member of a party of five thoroughly enjoyed our choice.
