Stopped in for dinner as a last minute decision 8:30 on a Tuesday night. We had no reservation, but we were welcomed and seated right away. Our server was very pleasant and went the extra mile to help me find a wine I'd like. I...More

This is a favorite of ours on the Connecticut Shoreline. The food is always consistently good, the service excellent and the wine list has some great bottles at reasonable prices. The menu which changes frequently offers seasonal, regional, and house specials so there is always...More
