Great dinner prior to nearby Dionne Warwick concert. Michael, our waiter, was attentive throughout. Wine selection was more than adequate. Oysters Rockefeller were excellent.

Beautiful location and setting. Ala carte menu. Most dinner items are $25-$30. They come with potatoes and vegetables. Meatball app is enough for a good dinner. Lobster bisque was very good. Tropical salad was so so. Filet was very tasty. Lobster tail was over cooked....More

Its a nice simple buffet. There is a little salad and topings, 2 hot items, 2 or 3 soups and breads. What's nice is everything is included in the reasonable price, even your beverage.
