Average food. The sides were better than main dishes. Soup was ok. Nothing great but if you are hungry it works

We have been here before and had good meals but this visit was very disappointing. I had crab cakes with very little crab and my husband had over blackened fish. The service and the bread were good, however.

Walked in and stood there for a good 5 minutes. Nobody acknowledged our arrival. Checked the door to make sure they were open, yep. It smelled funky, in a bad way. Uninviting.

And of course our wonderful homemade desserts such as Key Lime Pie and Caramel Bread Pudding are pure delight. We invite you to come on in and make yourself at home!
