For a number of years we always made it a point to dine hear while participating in trade shows at the Convention Center. Although it's been over 10 years since then, we were happy to find it still in business. Nothing has changed except some...More

I had listened to a good friend talk about this place for years. Although he had eaten other things from their menu, he absolutely raved about the fried snapper whenever he had it. Well, last week I was in the area, with time to kill...More

When we turned down the side street looking for this place, I had my doubts. But, once we parked and walked toward the door, we were greeted warmly, told to sit wherever we liked, and asked what we'd like to drink. I had grilled salmon...More
