Held a retirement reception here and the food was outstanding as well as the support services. All our guest were very pleased and well fed. I enjoyed the Hawaiian BBQ sandwiches and crab wontons. The Garden and location just added to a wonderful day.

A nice quite little spot to catch some live acoustic music. Fill up on good food on the patio with a great view of Norfolk's Nauticus, Gent, etc.
