Despite the bar being nearly empty, we couldn't get the attention of the bar tender. We were hoping to have a drink and decide... More

Sorry to hear you were not given a proper greeting when you came in. All customers should be greeted in a timely manor and I did speak to my staff about this issue. As far as us being a "dated restaurant." Our whole building inside and out has been newly renovated and decor is brand new. Sorry your expectations were... More

The hot appetizer special was the local steamers and they did not disappoint. I wish I would have ordered a second plate rather than an entree, they were so good...

We had been told to go here before but had not tried it. However, we went in around 2:00 for lunch. Our waitress, Lynne, was absolutely fantastic.
