My wife asked a pasta with shrimp, which was very nice, and I asked for the diablo steak, which was tasty and soft. The waiter was very kind.The restaurant was hosting lots of seniors, which in general like good restaurants. Good choice in town.

A Half-dozen. They are half priced during Happy Hour 4-6pm. We usually source from Chesapeake Bay, but occasionally British Columbia during off-season.
