We met some friends here for dinner. I thought it would be more like a local diner, but the place is beautiful and the food excellent. Our seafood selections were well made and delicious, the staff is first rate and attentive.

Large menu with many seasonal specials. Very full on a Wednesday night. Food was good but service was a little slow. Our waitress was training and not being guided very well. Fortunately we were not in a hurry. Would return
