Reservations were made sight unseen. Casual setting as most places are in the area. Table for 8 outside (family gathering). We ere seated outside where they had about 4 other tables. Our nieces & nephews get a bit loud & though we tried to keep it down, we were a noisy table. That said our waitress was professional, informative, efficient & most of all, patient. 4 ordered the filet, 3 the rib-eye & 1 rock bass. This chef knows how to grill beef! The beef arrived exactly as ordered (well, med, med-rare), so tender is literally melted in your mouth. The bass also received rave reviews. Sides interesting & equally good thought honestly we concentrated on that tender beef! Ended up buying drinks for the people sitting next to us since they were close. Thank you Vine for being patient with our group & for serving such an A+ meal...

This is a small home town restaurant with really good food. It is a bit on the pricy side with a $20 corkage but they serve fresh ingredients with excellent service. Parking is horrible so allow time to find a spot and don't even try to get in without a reservation.
