    Came here for our anniversary. They had a Happy Anniversary card for us. Food & service were excellent. I love the atmosphere. A little loud, but not too bad - we could hear each other talking.

    First time here. Nice looking place. Server was prompt, initially. I got a beer, wife an old fashioned. Drinks came pretty quick. I got half done with my beer before we seen our server again to order, which was quite a while. Place did not seem horribly busy. Ordered ceasar salad with grilled chicken, and lobster corn chowder. Wasn’t too long before the salad came, but no soup. Chicken in the salad was pure rubber. Couldn’t eat it. Salad was good. Server finally came by and noticed I didn’t get my soup. Soup then came about 5 min later. Soup was good. Overall, not the worst experience, but far from the best. Too bad..its a pretty nice place.
