We loved coming to this place but the food has been terrible the last few visits. We even brought friends in january and we had said it was so good but were embarrassed. Such a good place and quaint but the food is not.

We were lucky I think to get table at lunchtime. But it was early on in the week. The best Scampi I have ever tasted.
