Good food and good service. We had rib eye steak and scallops for dinner along with calamari (which was just okay) and asparagus soup. The vegetables were cooked perfectly

Stopped here for family dinner. Something for everyone including our 18 month old. I had the seared snapper with corn relish and Gouda grits. It was excellent! Flat bread was an excellent appetizer as was the crab dip!
