We've been coming here for two winters now and the food and service are still top notch. We love steak night best of all. The music is relaxing and very good.

Great place for cold beer & shrimp. The shrimp are fresh, and there is live music. IT IS somewhat dated, and dark inside. The restroom could be renovated... The service was good and friendly. I would return.
