“Food is good but price is not”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

We went for dinner as neither of us wanted to cook. The restaurant has just opened fairly recently and it is near our house so I was anxious to try it. One enters into a light space with tables and windows that open to the outside. It was a lovely night so the windows were open. We were seated behind the bar (which is located in the center front of the restaurant) so it was darker in the rear. We had a booth. The ambience is bar-like, pretty much as I expected, but the rear room feels down-at-the-heels even though it's not even two months old.

I ordered a hamburger and my husband had a lobster sandwich. The hamburger was very good and he liked his sandwich. We each had two drinks. The bill was $80.00 or so. It seems like a lot for what we ordered.

The service was good. There is plenty of parking since there is a huge parking lot behind the strip mall.
