“Food very good, service fantastic”
Reviewed December 12, 2013

All of the items served were presented well, but some were not exceptional in preparation. The single most memorable item was the squash soup, one of the best I have ever tasted. The mix of squashes and the spices were subtle and complemented each other to perfection (I had to stop here because my mouth started watering excessively). The entrees and sides, while very good, simply couldn't measure up to this standard, and the desserts we tried were unremarkable. The service, on the other hand, was flawless. The staff has a knack for being there just when you need them and leaving you in peace when you don't. Every need is met while you are only forming a thought about it.

“Unbelieveable”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

One of the most frustrating...unprofessional...insulting experiences I have ever had in a restaurant. If the food was decent ...they might be able to get away with it.

“From the Best Burgers to Best Seafood”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

This hidden gem is found in the beautiful foothills of Carefree Arizona. We are always impressed by the friendly service and the top quality steak and seafood. Definitely a place for surf & turf (lobster tail). Recently we stopped in for a quick burger at the bar. Now we are addicted. Graving a juicy burger with provolone and mushrooms, don't forget the onion rings.
