Usually a very positive go-to place during out ptown visits. This time lobster smelled unusually fishy..had grit/sand in it..manager didn't believe us..wouldn't make a bill accommodation when food was returned to server.

This place has a ton of potential! Very cool spot, food is horrible. No flavor and everything was overcooked. If a little more care was given this place could be fantastic!

I go here often and never am I disappointed. With Rob serving drinks at the bar and Wendy in the kitchen you cannot go wrong. My favorite is tied between the bourbon steak tips and the seafood scampi! Great job!!

We had dinner here this evening -- myself, my husband, and my mother. Mom had a lobster ravioli and Caesar salad, my husband had the shrimp scampi, and I had Bourbon steak tips. Everything was superb and service was excellent. We ate outdoors for the fresh air and people watching. It was VERY nice to get off the crowded and... More

Like others, we stumbled on to this place because a lot of the other restaurants around were full and we were a party of 10. There were too many other people in the place, but the food and service were wonderful. I definitely had one of the best filet's I have ever had. The caesar salad was also very good.... More

Here's the thing. Location- wonderful. Atmosphere/decor- spectacular. Food? Disappointing. With just a little more effort from the kitchen, this place would stand out like a jewel. I've eaten here several times...because its always easy to get in to..and there's a reason for that. I want to love it. I do. But....it's gonna be quiet drinks on the (beautiful) patio...till they...

This hidden place is fantastic. The bourbon tips are perfect. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Excellent atmosphere away from the crowd.

This is the best deal in Ptown. I have 2 favorites here! Bourbon steak tips and scallop piccata. This has turned in to a regular place to eat out for me. And this year with Rob upstairs making special martinis, you can not ask for more! Keep up the amazing work!

I have been here many times and love it! I have had most everything on the menu and specials. Some of the reviews are just off the wall for me. The steak tips are always done medium rare like I ask, big scoop of mashed potatoes and green beans. I have had the pork special, was tasty. I had the... More
