Sat on the bar side and had their coconut shrimp, it was very good. Six large were very filling and the sauce was good also. I would go back again.

The place is a hopping, nice menu and full bar. Two meals we ordered, both Italian were superb and quite large. Parking can be a bit of a crunch, and the inside decor is 1 star, but the food is great.

At a recent visit we had the fried calamari and Maine steamer appetizers. Both were very good especially the steamers. We had sushi, prime rib, broiled seafood combo and penne vodka with shrimp. Potions are generous and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meal.

This is the place you want to go for a regular meal. Nothing great but good bar food. Good for family's as they have a lot of good choices for kids. Not to expensive so good for large family's.
