Bistro 217 has it all--great food, atmosphere, and service. I personally recommend the crab nachos or one of the salads if you're there for lunch. If you're looking for an upscale dining experience, this is the place!

Excellent staff along with a great bar menu. Crab nachos turned out to be a major find. If you want a formal dining experience this is also a go to place. Specials change everyday so when ever you go it seems like your first visit

Food was excellent. Service was friendly and knowledgeable. Menu offers wide range of creativity prepared seafood as well as non-seafood alternatives. Reservations a must during busy summer season. Highly recommended!
