    Unfortunately the shrimp skewer was undercooked and steaks while cooked to the correct temperature were rubbery. This will be the last time I eat here.

    I wish we lived closer! We were in for Thanksgiving and my husband got the Prosperity Steak* 10 oz. sirloin marinated with olive oil, garlic and pepper, Worcestershire butter. He absolutely loved marinade. I got the Maryland Crab Cakes. Everything was delicious! And the service was excellent!! Again, I wish we lived closer as we still were talking about the dinner the next day!

    We had a party of 5 on Thanksgiving Day. A very busy day / time and when we arrived 15 minutes early we were immediately seated. Everything about the restaurant and the employees ran very smoothly. It was quite obvious that the employees are well trained and put the customers experience as top priority. This was our first time there but we will definitely be going back to this very nice restaurant.

    I ordered a filet cooked medium. It came out rare. It was sent back. Came back rare again. Sent back and they cooked it for third time. This time it came back well done. I’d eaten my potato and salad at this point. Told them to forget the steak. They asked if I’d like anything else. I needed dinner so I ordered shrimp. None of the meal was adjusted for our inconvenience. My husband had long finished his meal.

    Worst dining experience I’ve ever had. Of the 6 of us not one person got decent food. 2 being off of the kids menu. (How do you screw up a chicken tender?!) My husband never got his cocktail and our server who acted like she’d rather be eating a dirt sandwich than having to work. I was in customer service for 25 years. I’m the easiest customer to please and will always tip bc I’ve been there, (so you don’t have to watch me fill out the tip over my shoulder!!!) The entire meal and her service was complete garbage.

    We ate here on two different occasions and everything we ordered was near perfect. Spinach dip was great, fried calamari was tender and perfect and the steaks were absolutely delicious. Staff were also very nice. Highly recommend.

    Our meal was excellent. The clam chowder and oysters to start were outstanding. I had the salmon and my husband had the grilled seafood special. Both were delicious. The service was slow but I don't think it was the fault of our waiter Fabrizio who was very attentive. Seems the kitchen might have been short staffed. Ambiance would have benefited greatly by turning down the bright lights. Noise level was good with some audible music. Overall was a great meal.

    Waitress was very nice Food was served cold - had been sitting for a while. Sad when you order a filet and it is on a hot skillet and the skillet is Luke warm and steak if cold, burgers served cold steamed bun wasn’t steamed anymore, sides served cold. Waitress told us dessert was on the house, there was 4 of us and they charged us for 3 dessert and only gave 1 on the house. Appetizers didn’t make it to us until after our cold meals had been served. Sad to see such a nice restaurant have poor quality with service.
