Food was pretty good, my salmon was over cooked though. Service is very good. Nice outdoor dining if you have the right weather.

Hello Quincey and thank you for leaving a review. I'm sorry your salmon came to you overcooked. I hope you try us again; one bad fish shouldn't take away from all the others. Cheers!

Four of us had lunch on the patio in back. Hawaiian pizza, bruschetta, open-faced crab sandwich, shrimp, all well-prepared and served, priced well.

First impression- warm beer. But very good caprese salad. Terrible iced tea. Build your own pizza is a good idea. Personal size is great for one person. Thin crust is good. Nice place.
