Every time we go, it just feels like home. The staff, the management, and the food are all top notch. We enjoy the seafood, steaks, pasta, drinks and deserts! My only wish is I could bring my recliner and stay a while after dinner!

I have been here a couple of times and the one thing that is consistent is the very slow bar service while you are waiting for a table. Sometimes I will get a table (15 minute wait) before I can even order a drink. On...More

Many places do not allow sleeveless/tank tops. Not really appropriate but I can see where it could be. Health code issue too.
