We went around 4pm, so it was nearly completely empty besides our table. The service was good, but not outstanding, especially considering the lack of other customers. I opted for the lobster salad which was great, and they managed to make pancakes for my boyfriend's...More

The restaurant was hot, the service was slow and the food was just ok. Our waiter allowed drinks to go dry while still managing to walk past us to catch something on the bar TV. Overall just not that memorable on the food.

Walked in late on a Saturday afternoon without reservations. This popular eatery was jammed packed, but worth the 30 minute wait. The ambiance was great. Food and service top notch. A great place to eat as long as you are not in a hurry.

Extremely noisy, rude server who was not very familiar with the food or beverage menu, food was below average. Lots of better places to go in this area. We felt as if our being there was an inconvenience for our waiter.
