Good service, but the food was mediocre, the drinks were watered down, and kids were allowed in the BAR. What restaurant let's noisy kids in the bar, while running in and out to the babysitter / arcade? Really disappointed and will not be returning.More

Very family friendly restaurant. Penny candy for the kids. Fun children's menu. Food is freshly prepared and delicious. Fruit seasonal sangria highly recommended. Usually a line during summer weekends.

Waited 45 minutes and was seated on the bar area with not being asked if that was acceptable. Waitress must have been new as we had to ask for everything twice. In the middle of the meal, the bar singer started making it impossible to...More

Loved the food! Went with three friends. Everyone enjoyed their meals, the service and ambience. We found the prices to be comparable for the same type of dinner. Try the sangria. That alone is worth the trip.

I would first call them, and let them know just what you require as far as your seating needs are. They are VERY helpful and will do everything they can to help you. I would guess some where around 4:00 would be a good time... More

The seafood we use is the freshest and locally caught. We offer mako, swordfish, flounder, and scallops when in season, from our local fishermen. We use only jumbo lump crabmeat. Saturday night our prime rib is certified black angus. All soups are made from scratch with fresh vegetables. Friday and Saturday we have live entertainment with special drinks at our front porch bar.
