Had lunch here while on a business meeting. It was quiet so we could converse. Service was friendly yet unobtrusive. Crab cakes were as tasty as promised. Had a delightful experience and will plan on returning.

The crab cakes here are extraordinary. A large group of us were here for a funeral luncheon. The restaurant had no idea of how many of us would show up for lunch, yet they took care of us very well.

Eight of us went here for lunch. We sat in a private area. This is essentially a bar with a food service. The young server was very attentive. Prices were reasonable. The food here is bar food, so we don't expect restaurant fine dining. Average.
