Great food, service with a smile and live music every evening make this a welcome stop on our vacation. Really good desserts complement a very good menu. I had the house rub filet that was extremely tasty and tender.

Food was good. Some of the portions were a little small for the price. I loved the short rib melt. Also had good scallops.

I had to wait 10 minutes before I was even offered a drink. Food was okay but I felt very uncomfortable and not welcomed- forced service. Very sad experience for my family and I.
