I've been here maybe a dozen times since it opened. There's very little competition for a good steakhouse south of St. John, so if you live in the southern part of the county, you'll probably end up here. The steak and seafood are the highlights,...More

Very casual. In fact there is a dock to park your boat in the summer. ! I would say dressy casual if you have dinner plans. No shoes, no shirt , no service!😀
