Our group came to this place located in the mall near the water for dinner, and we were seated in a separate room from the rest of the restaurant. They had several local craft beers on tap and a number of regional wines. My wife and I both ordered steak with green beans and french fries. The steak was exceptional! Dessert was a brownie that neither of us liked.

We had a meal and a beer, I had a veggie burger which has to date been the best non meat burger... the staff were really attentive and friendly, our host Lewis was chatty and easy to talk with and gave us some great ideas for how to spend our time locally which was super helpful. Highly recommend for a quick beer or sit down meal.

BEST BURGER IN TOWN! Massive call, right? Especially when you have a rather popular burger joint around the corner. My advice...don't leave town without trying one of these! So big, my brother used a knife and fork. I, for one, love a challenge and devoured it whole. This burger was served in a bed of chips with a side of Tom sauce and was to die for. Next time I'll be stepping off the plane and finding myself driving straight here to purchase another juicy burger.

Thanks guys!!
