It was a delightful surprise that the lobster daze was still going on. I ordered lobster and found that it was very good. The service was excellent since the waitress was training a new staff member.. This is a good place for all your occasions....Come in a receive excellent food and service.More
Our reservation was 1 hour before closing time. We were concerned our experience would be rushed. Fortunately, it was the complete opposite. Our appetizers and dinners were spaced nicely and we enjoyed our coffee and dessert without feeling as if everyone was waiting to close...up for the night. It was very enjoyable and relaxing.More
