    While I loved the food. The noise level from a group across the room made it impossible for us to enjoy our meal and atmosphere.

    The waitress was not professional or friendly. She tended to the table beside us more than anything. We had to alert another waitress to get her attention. Will not be returning!

    The location was very peculiar. I didn’t know exactly where to enter. It resembled more of a club house than an actual restaurant from outside. The staff was great. Welcomed me as soon as I came in. Food came out fast and was tasty.

    We have visited this establishment before and my husband recommended we went back to celebrate our pre-valentines dinner. Food, live music, crowd, service, ambiance was on point. We enjoyed the relaxed, mature environment and overall it was amazing. Did recommend it to a few friends. Will definitely be back soon.

    I hate that when you dine in a group - this place will not give a separate check. Sometimes you’re seated with people who aren’t really with you and the check gets jacked up at the end …

    Love Friday nights. Service can be a bit slow sometimes but because you are involved in the music it doesn't bother until you are actually ready to order or leave.

    This was our first visit to this restaurant and we were very pleased with the number of options on the regular menu and the specials. I selected the special tropical pineapple entree with the watermelon and feta salad to begin. my companion chose a seafood entree. Both were very flavorful. The key lime pie desserts were also very good. Service was good and the options for indoor or outdoor seating was was pleasant.

    There wasn’t any restaurant to go in here. They had a power outage and closed it. They should have informed us when we made a reservation!

    The power outage was the unfortunate result of a car accident, which was not in our control. Our FoH staff called all reservations that supplied phone numbers. How kind of you to leave us such a lovely review.

    It is the worst restaurant in an upscale town that I have ever visited over twenty years. I was there to have a dinner conversation with my son. But they turned up very loud, un-appealing music for all the two hours that we were there. I stepped out to answer a phone call. A woman was aimlessly dancing at the entrance!!!!! Not a surprise that on a busy Saturday when we could not find a table at other restaurants in the area, this one had only five tables occupied. But the server was very good. I am never going there again.
