Rather small , but accommodating and welcoming restaurant. The menu varies for the seasons with a fine selection of fish, meats, pork and pasta. Pleasant surroundings with fine service and attention to detail. BYOB as an addition to the menus. Excellent desert selection.

I'm afraid to give "too good" of a review because folks will flock to this place. Ok, I will anyway: Nice little place, park in back. Young crew hustles, is pleasant and professional, and speak of their food offerings with pride. No wonder- food was awesome! Grilled oysters app - best I ever had. Carpaccio- excellent. Rib eye- cooked exactly... More

I was really on the fence between average and poor, but it came down to my perceived value for the quality of the meal and for the price - I have had far better meals at that price. The good: The staff were fantastic and very friendly! The grits were amazing. The field green salad was wonderful. The calamari was... More

The service was very good but overall very over priced place not to mention very loud atmosphere. Ordered the "jumbo" shrimp appetizer for $14 and we received 3 not so jumbo shrimp. My wife ordered the salmon which was good. I ordered the steak medium which came out rare, small and fatty. We came here a year ago and food... More

On the positive side the Service was excellent with the staff being very attentive. We had a nice table that gave us plenty of space. The atmosphere was good although extremely loud. We had difficulty hearing our server. Our appetizer was also very good. I would say it was the highlight of the evening. On the down side, I ordered... More

I find this place to be the most expensive in the area without a good reason to be so. If you appreciate spending money to tell your friends that you ate here then go for it!

This is truly a wonderful restaurant. Food is delicious. I had a pork porterhouse. Flavorful and juicy. Salmon was wonderful, as was the steak. Seasonal Farm fresh cuisine. Wait staff was very attentive and it was a BYOB. The interior was warm and welcoming. Not to be missed. You will be back I am sure.
