We went here for the seasonal menu. I ordered the mahi and to be honest it wasn't great. It was rubbery and not fish like at all. I have had mahi several times in other local restaurants and it has always been good. My husband...More

Large menu with many seasonal specials. Very full on a Wednesday night. Food was good but service was a little slow. Our waitress was training and not being guided very well. Fortunately we were not in a hurry. Would return

We had a hour wait but for great service, I am not surprised. The staff doesnt rush you as they shouldn't. If you font want a wait, I'd visit early or late. Every bit was delicious.

Good food and service! We will return again. Heard the outside bar is fun and early bird specials. There can be a line, so make a reservation.

Food is excellent, atmosphere lovely, on Saturday nights there is great live music. Older crowd. Prices are ok for the delicious meals they serve. I have eaten here numerous times. Crabby Jacks in the back is great for snacks and drinks. Wait is terrible though.

All of the restaurants have a long wait in this area. Waited 45 minutes for a table for 2 at 5:30 on a Saturday. If you are within walking distance of the restaurant that’s the best way to get here. The parking lot is packed....More
