A little pricey, but you get what you pay for. The food here has never disappointed me. If you go I recommend the Hawaiian Rib-Eye Steak.

Excellent food, the ribeye is amazing along with the grilled salmon. The banana creme pie is to die for. The gumbo is great. Friendly staff and love the fact that it's an historical building. & locally owned as well.
