We were a group of five and were immediately seated for lunch in the upstairs part of the restaurant. It had a nice view of the water. They got busy really quickly but somehow the staff handled it great and got our orders in and our food out quickly. We each ordered something different from ribs to trout to beef... More

I orderd the trout, but it was extremely dry, old and fried in really old oil, so was the fries. I had pain in my stomach for the next 3 hours. Can not believe this is number 2?!

Has the babe beef dinner. Served with lots of potatoes and a tiny salad. Beef was tasty and cooked rare though I ordered it medium. Took forever to get the bill with wait staff standing around chatting. And then the credit card machine did not work. Was ok but wouldn't go outta my way to visit this place.
