The food was wonderful. I took my daughter around 5 or 6 and it was nice! Good atmosphere, great service and even better food!

Charming environment and very good service. However, our group ordered seven different entrees and all were very disappointing. Steak was tough and over cooked. Fried shrimp was soggy. Fish was not fresh. Salads were wilted and tasteless. So sorry. Would not revisit this restaurant.

It seems there is always a long wait here, but on Sunday morning, the brunch menu is worth it. We had the Santa Fe eggs with avocado, black bean salsa and grated cheese. Yum! What a way to start the day.

We sat at the bar and received great service from Jackie. She kept our glasses full and took care of our dinner order too. She made sure we had everything we needed and we sure did. The ribeye was delicious as was the garlic mashed...More

Let me start by saying that I am allergic to seafood and this place has several dishes that are safe for me. The kitchen is on the second floor, so there are no food smells overwhelming the dining room. My husband got seafood everything, and...More
