love the atmosphere - our waitress was great. Food is always good. Only thing i would say is that for all the french fries they serve they should make a home made ketchup to go with it (they dont serve any because of the sugar...)
definitely will be back

Love this place, but this time ordered the steak medium rare and it came medium well. But they made good and didn't charge for it. Really appreciated it. All in all a great place.

It was fabulous. Can't believe we've never been here; now that my husband is gluten-free it was such a treat to be able to order anything on the menu. Every single thing was amazing we cleaned our plates for sure! Looking forward to going back and trying all the other menu items!

We love the food here. The grass fed beef sliders in plantains is our favorite. Very casual ambiance, and great for eating outdoors in warmer weather. For us, it’s one of the things we look forward to when going to the shore.

We were drawn to the restaurant, due to the attention to good, clean ingredients and grass fed beef. Everything was delicious! The ambiance is really wonderful for any kind of occasion or get together and service was prompt and personable. We knew the food would be good, but the big surprise were the desserts. We aren’t typically dessert people, but decided to try the funfetti cupcake and brownie and couldn’t stop shoving our faces! They sound simple, but simple was all that was needed, because you leave knowing that you’ll be craving another visit.

We had a very good meal starting with one of the best octopus we ever had anywhere. Then shared a 20oz steak medium rare which was perfect and Fries. It was delish. They only think they do not serve bread which we would have liked. Wait staff is very friendly and good service.
