Good food. Decent service and a very friendly staff. Our food was good. Nothing 5 stars but the food was good and there was plenty. The desserts are on the small side but were yummy.

Right off of busy Woodlawn Road rests a wonderful eatery. We had a wonderful meal of beef (rib eye and filet), both cooked to perfection. The service was attentive, but not overwhelming. And the nautical atmosphere was fun. We'll definitely return!

We were actually looking for another restaurant when we stumbled upon this one. From the outside it's not much to look at, and the surrounding area lacks a consistent look. However, the inside was clean with nice seating, the decor a nice mix of brick, wood, and burgundy leather. I enjoyed the steakhouse burger and the loaded baked potato, and... More

I went there today with a group of folks for lunch and we were all pleased with the food. I had a grouper wrap with cole slaw and fried squash. The sandwich was quite good as was the slaw. One person in the party, who had been there a few times in the past, strongly recommended the fried squash. The... More

Went here with colleagues during a business trip as it was only a block or two from our hotel. Each of us got a steak, myself getting a filet. It was a bit tough and had a little too much seasoning on it. But still good and the service was great. Unique atmosphere with the music selection playing overhead... Sounded... More
