This place was top notch! Everything was so good and the atmosphere overall was incredible. My sisters and I went for my birthday and it was the best place we could’ve picked. Everything was wonderful. The food was outstanding, the service was impeccable, and they treated me really well for the occasion. I received a free dessert for my birthday and the live music came and played at my table! It was an experience! I recommend this so highly, if not for anything at least the experience. You will not be disappointed this place is literally so great and I can’t say enough about how good the food was. For sure the best steak I ever put in my mouth. More

Saturday, 4:00 - 5:30 pm, late December. Temp 65 down to 50s. Light crowd outdoors early. Plenty of seating indoors. Excellent sunset view. Waiter was excellent - experienced and humorous. Appetizers were plentiful, with something for everyone, as were the entrees. Presentation and flavors were excellent for this local establishment. I would expect much larger crowds during warmer weather. More
