Had dinner there last night. Thursday is lobster night, and they don't disappoint. Food and service were both fantastic! Menu choices are great! Can't say enough good things about this place.

Some great dishes and some misses. Lobster is as good as you'd get on the coast of Maine, but occasionally you'll get a tough piece of meat or game. Expensive cocktails, stick to the wine.

Love the quiet atmosphere and the New York strip steak with asparagus and garlic potatoes. The pairing of malbec australian red wine . The tomato bisque soup and a side wedge salad with fresh bread and butter. Does not get any better.
