More than happy with every course. Appetizer was so good and so large I could have left at that point but the food kept coming. Farm to table type food. Homemade soup, fresh salad, nice sides, great dessert. We will be going back for sure.

I ordered a special recommended by our server. Big mistake! Bowtie pasta with 3 shrimp and a tablespoon of crabmeat, and BLAND beyond belief for $27.00. I have had oatmeal that was more exciting! Service poor and restaurant loud. Will never return. Very disappointed since...More
