Everything about my experience was excellent. Great service, lovely but unpretentious atmosphere, and delicious food. Great shrimp and crab cakes. The clam bake with lobster was not only tasty, but a great value. They have a nice wine selection, too. If I lived nearby, this...More

Everything about our visit was perfect. Stuffed mushrooms and shrimp cocktail were both absolutely fantastic. The steak (filet) was to die for. Service was quick and friendly. Will definitely be back the next time we go to Cleveland. Worth every penny.

Food was a slightly above average, waitress was very friendly but everyone else looked like they were having a bad day. Very noisy at bar but not extremely crowded for a Wednesday night. I'd go back because the waitress was very friendly and helpful.
