Enjoyed the service and view from the patio. Had the cob salad for lunch! Good although a little too much dressing which made bottom of my salad was a little soggy. Our server was very tentative and friendly. Would go back here again, hopefully soon.More

It has lovely view and decent food but a bit pricey for lunch. So keep that in mind if your on a budget. The staff was great from hostess to waiter.

Anniversary lunch with the kids. We specified on the reservation the occasion. No mention by staff. Started off with good pretzels and crab cake. The entrees were flavorless, bland, plain. Meatballs on the spaghetti were dry as the golf balls. 11 year old son said...More
