We both had a salad. My wife had the Lobster caesar and I had the Seafood salad which was a large fresh green salad, chopped vegetables and grilled lobster, scallops and shrimp served with warm butter. Too much to eat for lunch but absolutely delicious.

While we enjoyed the outdoor seating and were brought drinks fairly quickly, we waited over an hour for our food! The waitress did tell us they had someone new in the kitchen, but that was no excuse. She asked us if we wanted more drinks,...More

The burger and fries were great. The waitress was friendly and helpful. The menu had many yummy sounding items. It was very busy when I was there, and it took a few minutes to place our drink order, but everything else happened in a normal...More
