Staff were exceptional but food was mediocre and over-priced. Pass on this place. Fried tomatoes were awful. :/

If you're looking for a mouth-watering fillet, this is the place! The coffee crusted fillet was just as delicious as the plain. And the fresh baked bread, brushed with butter and topped with fresh parm cheese, is out of this world!! No room for dessert...More

Great fried green tomatoes! Food was great. Good ambience. Attentive waitstaff. On the pricier side, but Friday's there are half priced bottles of wine, which is when we happened to go. All in all, a good dining experience.

We ate there for our anniversary and it was quite nice. I would let them know it is a special night so you can have a table in a private area.
