Had dinner with family in the courtyard, its a very nice setting with a very pricey menu. Steaks are the speciality. Service was efficient, our server was very knowledgeable about the wine list.

A good visit on July 4th before the fireworks! Lucky to get the seats at Lucky's on short order. The service was superb and the steak was great, too. It's a little pricier than expected in such a small town but it's also worth the...More
