They have awesome Sushi and dinner entrees! Definitely need to make reservations as they tend to be busy most of the time especially on the weekends.

If your looking for a great meal that's different than the everyday menu, this is the place. The chef always has a creative menu and daily specials. It's our favorite restaurant and I've lived here 50 years.

The front of house is very talented and knowledgeable, you think you have decided what you want until he explains the specials! A great place for both fish or meat and a must if you are in the area. They also do a Steak and beer dinner for $14.00 which is unbelievable.

We have always heard great things about this place, so decided to try it for my birthday. It was a huge letdown. All of our meals were lacking flavor. Sadly, we will not be returning.
