The bar area has a seperate menu and the fish and chips were amazing! Also, don't miss the barrel aged tequila margarita, it's worth it.

We had great food and service. I am on a special diet and having substitutions was not a problem. My wife loved her meal and my duck was delicious.

We took our friends out for their 40th anniversary. I mentioned it when I made the reservations. They didn’t mention anything about it. That was very disappointing. The food wasn’t that great for the money!!!! We spent over $250.00 including the tip. Not Worth IT....More
