Diner Reviews
  • "Went here for NYE dinner with friends. All of the staff, from the hostess, to the bus boy, to our waitress, the service was excellent. Very friendly and attentive the entire time. Delicious guacamole to start, great selection of beer, wine, and the hard stuff too. The menu has a good mix of the traditional, with some adventurous seafood items too. All in all a great choice for a casual meal with friends."
