Their shrimp bruschetta is simply amazing- if you're craving something a little more filling... the shrimp and grits will definitely have you leaving with a smile :)

I was extremely happy with the service,very prompt. Waitress was very polite. Everything came in perfect timing. Meal was bursting with flavor in every bite. It taste so good I almost didn't want to swallow it! The wine was amazing too! Was an excellent compliment to the fine food it was served with. I must compliment the chef and say of all the places I have been throughout the US this is by far my #1 choice and plan to dine here again...hopefully soon!!

Off-season and staff seemed reluctant to prepare breakfast. I ordered the grouper dish twice. Great the first time; too salty the second. Homemade soups were quite tasty.

We enjoyed most everything we ate here. We had breakfast several mornings and one dinner - no complaints - except for the 'homemade' biscuits. NOT. As I told the waitress, nothing like my mama's! But everything else was good.

Stayed here on our anniversary and had a wonderful time. The place is pet friendly which normally we avoid and it was Bassett hound rescue day!!! Must have been 50 dawgs there!! We almost left but hung in there anyway. To my surprise we heard no annoying barking and never even seen a dog hair on anything. I told someone on the staff how well we liked the place and complimented them on its cleanliness, especially with all those dogs. I said I was surprised because I am very sensitive to smells and the only place I could detect a slight (and I mean slight) odor was in the elevator. The next time we rode that elevator it had been thoroughly cleaned and smelled as fresh as can be. We will stay again.
