Great dinner from soup to desert and drinks. Service was excellent. She crab soup was outstanding. Had scallops and steak; both were wonderful. We split a bread pudding desert and still took some home: very good and very generous portion.

Yes, children are allowed. Lunch and brunch are more kid-friendly atmospheres but we do also have a kids menu available at night as well.
