We always enjoy going there. The view is splendid. The food is tasty and there is a good variety to choose from no matter if you are there breakfast, lunch or dinner. Service is good and servers pleasant.

“Some good, some overambitious”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2012

My wife and I had dinner there last night. On the positive...we had a window seat with a nice view and the waitstaff was very attentive without being intrusive.
Appetizers: My wife ordered the shrimp cake which she pronounced so good she could lick her plate. My Fried green tomatoes were rather tasteless and hard. I think the Brie cheese may have contributed to having too much fat content as the mouth feel was definitely too greasy.
Entree: Again my wife made the better choice. She opted for the bacon wrapped scallops and shared a bite me. They were succulent. On the other hand, my crab stuffed trout had too much going on. The trout itself was fried in a cornmeal coating. I found the the fish was dry and actually a lot tougher than you would expect trout to be. The crab stuffing had too much breading for my taste and overall it detracted from the fish. I would have expected the opposite.
Dessert: Wife's chocolate cake with blood orange ice cream-great! my fig and pear bread pudding...tasted like it had a lot of nutmeg. I thought it could have been tempered by some vanilla ice cream.
Note to Self: Let my wife order for me next time!!

“Good Bar/Not So Good Food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2012

Party of 9 with virtually noone else there. Bar service was good but white wine was warm. Burgers were OK, Ruben was pretty bad and pizza was fair. Overall not worth the price
