Came here on a Saturday night about 8:45pm on a quest to try a new barbecue joint. Loved the decor as soon as we walked in. A good looking menu, albeit a little pricey, with plenty of options. The service was agonizingly slow, which was...More

I was in the area, and decided to return here (I am rarely in the area). I had planned on a simple snack. The line-caught, fresh salmon special with polenta triangles, squash and corn bread (would you like some fresh honey on that?) made that...More
