Beautiful historical building, established business with seasoned clientele. Classy, yet casual, dressy, again casual comfortable, no matter what your mood. Leave the dock, or have a more formal gathering or party. It’s seems everyone is accommodated there with open arms.

The waitress said “F you” when I told her my daughter’s Ceaser salad was ordered without cheese and the kitchen put it on anyway. You should not be in tears when going for dinner with your family. It is not our fault that 2 people...More

Top of the line food, service and atmosphere. Loved the cellar bar prior to dinner for delicious house wine, cheeses, and antipasto. Enormous portions, outstanding Italian bread with dipping oil, extensive menu, everything home made, and one of the owners made the rounds in the...More
