    Everything about our meal was great! Our server Kelsey was awesome. The margherita pizza was cooked to perfection and crunchy. . Loved the yellow tomatoes. The salads were large and the shrimp was sweet and cooked perfectly. We loved the fish too. Parmesan baked was delicious. We will definitely be back.

    The waitress was excellent. However the loaded potato was small and they aluminum foil was hard to remove. The Menu said loaded was $3 more. But I Was Charged $6. My wife order the sweet potato not loaded. Our friends enjoyed their meal as we did.

    From the minute you walk in and Kathy greets you with that bubbly personality you know it’s going to be a great night. They lost power a few minutes before we came in. They let us sit at the bar, we got drinks and cold shrimp. The Chef came out to tell us what he could do for us at that point. Once the electric company said it was going to be awhile they called all their reservations for the night to cancel. They even had a company Christmas party of 50 they had to cancel. The staff was amazing! Kind, funny, accommodating etc. we felt bad for them and all they wanted to do was accommodate us. There were only three couples in the place because we all came in before they legally had to close the doors. We can’t say enough about how we were treated by this warm, kind staff.
