Had a lovely Sunday lunch with friends here in early September. Business was brisk when we arrived which usually indicates the food is good. And, it was! We opted to sit on the outside deck and were seated along the railing right on the water....More

Went here with a group of six, having driven over an hour to try something different. Decided to sit outside on the back deck, and loved the view. But the setting sun was in our faces and made us hot and uncomfortable towards the end...More
