Our marinated steaks (filet and t-bone) were perfectly cooked (medium rare), juicy and delicious. The marinade is excellent. Our waitress was friendly and attentive. Nothing fancy or pretentious at this tiny joint, just good food and friendly service.

And that would be missing a great joint! Place looks like your corner bar and serves food like a great restaurant. We split the swordfish which was as fresh as it gets. Try the chocolate thing for dessert, you won't be unhappy

Staff was very pleasant and professional. Mussels, Jumbo Shrimp Cocktail, and Chicken Wings appetizers were very good to the last...More

I'll be honest. This place is an old bar with a small dining room. Nothing fancy. No frills. But if you want the most mouthwatering steak you ever tasted - THIS IS IT! I ordered a marinated steak and recommend that. It's incredible. I don't...More
