All entrees are excellent! Service and ambience makes this a five star choice. Whatever you order, finish off your meal with a piece of their famous coconut cake! Order one and share!

Great menu, we ate in the bar in a very comfortable booth, very cozy and private. The menu was wonderful and the food was excellent. Our waiter was just great, wonderful personality. I had the scallops, which were pricy but worth every penny.

Jacket is not required, but many men do wear them. My husband did not, he was fine with a collard shirt. It is within walking distance. We walked and it was between .5-1 mile.
