Spent our Anniversary dinner here. Excellent food. The waitress was very friendly and helpful in anything we asked about the menu. We went with family for our wedding anniversary. Called ahead just to be sure we could fit in there and they were very accommodating....More

Got a wrap for lunch, it was ok and only 30% more expensive than other places. But the real kicker was at dinner. We went there because it was close to the music pier. My wife asked for water and they brought a bottle. When...More
