Wife and I visited while staying nearby and we weren’t disappointed. The ambiance of the older houses was nice. Food was delicious and the service was friendly and efficient.

We really liked the caesar salad at the table and one of the best high-end filet mignon steaks in the county. Flavors were excellent. Service was top notch. Want to impress your wife - take her here. We both loved it.

I saw a mix but you are safe with business casual or jeans and a dress shirt for men. The ladies were dressed up more than the men. This is not a place for shorts, flip flops or T-shirt’s.
