Wonderful food, well prepared. Business dinners are a breeze here. Details are not a problem. Consistently high quality service and variety of dishes. I can count on always having a great meal here.

The atmosphere was amazing. There was live music on the Friday night we went. The Lobster Bisque is a must have. Wonderful evening!

Atmosphere is great. Steaks and Fish are excellent. Bar atmosphere and drinks are superb. I have tried the Cajun skillet and the mixed seafood grill recently - both were great.

We had a very nice meal here. The crabcake was exceptional -loaded with lump crabmeat with very little breading/filling. We both had filets that were cooked perfectly. Overall ambiance and service was great. We would definitely go back.

They do have kids menu. We take children once in a while and they love it. We've split items like their huge Wedge Salad, but haven't tried to split an entree.
