Our waitress...I don't remember her name but she was fantastic and the food was superb. We had the Shorty Platter and Nachos followed by steaks and different seafoodie things. We had a ton of food! I would definitely recommend this place.

I stopped in for lunch. The French Onion soup was very good. Plenty of cheese and onions and not too salty or bland. I also had a side cobb salad with grilled chicken and blue cheese dressing. It was the perfect size for lunch. The...More
