Excellent service!! Oyster appetizer with a variety of preparations was a great suggestions from our waitress and was delicious. The scallops were very tasty and perfectly prepared as always. I wasn’t wild about the Brussels but that may just have been me. The lobster and gnocchi special was rich and delicious. All around a lovely dinner!

First time for dinner and had the crab egg rolls which were delicious. The filet mignon was amazing. My.friend had the crab cakes which were excellent and made with lump crab meat. Will definitely be back. The atmosphere was wonderful as well!

Great greeting made you feel comfortable. Food was excellent. Servers very courteous. Had a bit of a wait for food to arrive. Considering the times with available help it could be understanding. Our wait was rewarded when we were not charged for the single drinks we had. Look forward to return.

The food was so fresh and delicious! The restaurant is so cozy and inviting. The staff were so personable, friendly, and made you feel like family. I had the seafood sauté (absolutely amazing!), the chicken Chesapeake, and the carrot cake bread pudding (to die for!). If you’re looking for a great night out, this is the place to go! Five stars on every level!

Great Food! Steaks (beautiful cut of beef and tender) prepared exactly as ordered...you don't even need a steak knife to cut the meat. The service is awesome. Our waitress Billy was exceptional. We'll be back!

First the good...I had the crab egg roll and the scallops which were both very good. Brussel sprouts were the special veggie that could be served with dinner or an appetizer. They were also very good.

Now for the not so great......my husband had the cream of crab soup and the ribeye sandwich with fries plus gravy. He said that the rib eye was good but both the soup and the gravy lacked flavor, plus there were a lot of shells in the soup.

The poor was the service. We had to ask 3 times for our bread service and had to ask for my husband's beer as well. Additionally, we asked for the brussel sprouts to be served with our entrees, but they came with the soup and egg roll.
We drove over 45 minutes to come here hoping that the reviews were accurate when we visited. Sadly, it was not the case.

I had a solo dinner tonight and left beyond satisfied. My server was personable and knowledgeable about the menu. My cocktails/entree/dessert all came out sooner than I expected and my water glass was never empty. I especially loved the berry crème brulee! What a great experience.

Fantastic food and service, but a bit pricy. However, it’s the kind of ‘pricy’ you don’t mind paying for… you just can’t go there as often as you’d like!
