Went here for dinner one night with my fiancé and friends and it was delicious. It was a little pricy and the lobster was rock lobster but it was worth every penny. We would highly recommend it!

Top 5 points: 1) Good food. 2) Great atmosphere. 3) Great staff. 4) There may have been problems in the kitchen as the food took forever to arrive. 5) I'd go back.
