If you haven't been, you need to go. A definite hidden gem. The food is consistently delicious. The crab cake appetizer was perfect. The short rib, meatloaf, pork chop and lobster Mac were so good. Excellent presentation. Save room for their desserts. The best coconut...More

Wow, I'm shocked I've never been here before, they have outstanding food, great craft beers that change all the time. Yet, the most refreshing thing in the world is their house made ginger beer, it's the most perfect refreshing thing around

I've been here twice and had a great experience both times. Two of our group had the scallop special which were perfectly cooked and served with a small portion of greens and tomato. Another had the veal and I had the Faroe Island salmon. All...More
