My husband and I decided to try this restaurant during restaurant week. I upgraded my meal from the 20.17 and got the lobster tail pasta. It was delicious. We got an app of calamari as well. Service was nice too. I'll be back

I really enjoyed this restaurant and the food. It has a casual comfortable vibe and the food was fantastic. The calamari appetizer was one of the best I have had. The calamari was tender and the coating was crispy and the flavors were great. The...More

Stopped in without a reservation after 8 on a Saturday and were promptly seated. Shared apps, salads, and small plates: all of high quality. Fresh oysters were very tasty. Great selection of beer and wine. We will return (again).
