Went there for dinner last night. Food was great actually. Shrimp nachos were delightful and gumbo was also great. Initially sat on the deck but was eaten alive by no see-ums. Bug juice did not deter any of them!

This is a great date night place, quiet but not too quiet, great wine selection, and the food is fabulous. I had scallops which were perfectly cooked. My husband had their regular gourmet burger, also delightful. Service was impeccable.
