Our early bird special was outstanding. All four of us ordered the Sunset Special of Wood Fired Mahi Mahi, Gulf shrimp and scallops. Great price for an exquisite meal. The grilled veggies were crisp tender and the butternut mashed potatoes were perfect for the meal! The dipping sauce for the bread included a small amount of balsamic vinegar with the... More

This restaurant has it all!! The food selection was exceptional, prices were very reasonable, and the server (J.K.) was the best waitress I have ever had - no lie. If she were any better she would have personally cut and fed me my food. It is a definite must eat local if visiting like I was.

The food and wait staff are great (thanks Janna)! We went on a cold and very rainy day for the early specials. The thing that lost a rating point was the hostess (Emily) that asked that we wait out in the cold rain while she noted where she would seat us! I didn't. Granted, she was out there too and... More

We came here with a party of 7. We asked to be seated together and they told us they could not move any tables together. Two tables down from us is a table of 7 who had the tables pushed together as well as a private party going on with several tables pushed together. Now mind you, this place was... More

The food taste like homemade if your family was a 5 Star chef! Marissa and Brea have taken wonderful care of me at the bar. I don't drink, but... More
