We ate at this restaurant on the recommendation of a local. It was a bit busy the day we went, so we had to eat on the outdoor patio which was chilly. I had a seafood platter which was very good. My husband had ribs which were okay - nothing to write home about. Limited parking available and I recommend reservations.

We had a large group (over 16) and they were able to accommodate and serve just fine. I was surprised by the large selection of food. I had the Shrimp and Scallop Zorba (which was fantastic). Several had their steaks and seemed to be cooked like they wanted it. Don't be fooled by the outside appearance of the restaurant, you will enjoy a good meal and drinks inside.

This restaurant is a local staple for seafood at it's finest. The lobster bisque is too die for. A bit on the expensive side but well worth the price and you won't leave disappointed. The only issue is the parking..it's very limited and just off the main road.

I called ahead to check on hours and was rewarded with a table upon arrival set with glasses of water, menus and even 2 kids menus. Appeared that most diners were regulars, some nicely dressed, some casual and even some in their work clothes. There are several dining areas, to include the bar area with "hi-tops". Restrooms are small and reasonably clean. Was very impressed by the professional "wait staff", not some college kid working 2 days a week, etc. Outside dining patio looked comfortable in nice weather. Nice selection of steaks and seafood, all reasonably priced.
