The food here is outstanding! We tried the ceviche mixto, the sea bass, the red snapper, and the tres leches cake. All of it was delicious! The cocktails were so good, too. Our server, Jackson, did an excellent job…very attentive to our needs and very personable. Would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone that enjoys great food, beautiful ambiance, and outstanding service!

About the restaurant
We’re serving up tasty farm-to-kitchen dishes & cocktails out of our from-scratch-only kitchen and bar. Microwave? Never heard of it. We use slow-cooking methods on our live-wood grill, smoker, and spit because food just tastes better that way.
We believe that local is a place as much as it is a way of eating. Everything on our menu is infused with and inspired by the local ingredients available each season. All of this goodness is served to you as you kick your feet up in our rocking chairs, dine at a fancy table, or relax out on our porch.

Great experience every time. Perfectly cooked steaks & seafood & the Smokey Joe’s mac & cheese is the best.
