Hubster loves lobster but was disappointed with the amount of lobster in his pasta dish. My fresh fish was fine, but tiny bits of shrimp in the mashed potatoes just seemed odd to me (despite that I love both). Then again, toes in the sand,...More

I think it is still on the menu, but not 100% sure. We ate there twice and the food was great, even with special orders.

Can you send me your wine list? Can we bring our own wine and pay corking fee?
