Always had a good meal. Everything is fresh and their specials are always delicious. Outdoor dinning is great for the spring, summer, and fall. The owners and wait staff are very friendly.

We had an okay meal, certainly not the best in town but not the worst. I expected more oomph from their menu- everything is a little outdated and bland. The cocktails and wine were nice, though.

Great service. They went out of their way to get it right. Tremendous food! Everything cooked to perfection...and the bar is not stingy. A really great place on the walking, outdoor mall in downtown. The dowstairs has less seating and a little less noise.

Went for dinner. Sat outside and that was very nice. The prime rib was not great. Have had way better. More like a steak than prime rib. Crab and corn soup was good. Filet and crab cake were ok. Crab cake not the best. Filet...More
