Large Gluten Free MenuSurprised at extensive GF menu. Have good GF bread too! Tuna was overcooked. Masked potatoes were dry. But the GF made up for it. Wish they could find a way to make their crabcakes GF.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGood business lunch locationService was very good, attentive but not overbearing. Very good lunch menu selection. Event was a business meeting. Restaurant was spread out enough that the crowd noise provided a good background to the business discussions. Wait staff kept taking care of us long after lunch was cleaned up, which allowed us to complete our discussions.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMVery niceAnother great meal.

This was my first time here and everyone in my party was very happy with the food.

Our server, Jim H. was very knowledgable and helpful in answering questions regarding menu items. Service was excellent throughout our dining experience. 1 of our party had the striped bass special of the day. It was prepared perfectly and accompanied by jasmine rice and sauteed spinach. The fish was fresh, flakey and seasoned well. 1 of our party had the double stuff shrimp which were also very tastey and prepared perfectly with an abundance of crab meat. The fried oyster appetizer was excellent and paired with a very nice seaweed salad. Nice wine selection added to this experience.
