I kid you not. I had the best meal of my life at this restaurant. Everyone in my group agreed that this is now their favourite place to eat in the area. I don't just recommend, if I could I would personally hand out flyers...More

I had the oyster plate and Nancy had a philli cheesesteak. Both were fabulous. I tried the pale ale and it was good. We are not dessert people so no report there. Great service from greeting to table. Love it!

The service is excellent, everyone we have ever encountered has been awesome. The food is outstanding - we love their salads, fish tacos, buffalo shrimp, really anything on the menu. Worth the wait, we could eat here every night

Our desserts are freshly baked daily. We don't always have the same offerings, however, the flourless cake often is offered. I can't guarantee it, but Ibcan guarantee what we have will be fresh. Cheers and bon appetit!
