Had no decaf for brunch, wouldn't accommodate our preferences with eggs and sided. Had to order exactly as menu stated. Not felt welcome. The food was good but we would not return

The food was superb and we loved the ambiance! The menu had so many great choices, it was difficult to decide. But the Breakfast Sandwich and the Omelets were the selections, and they were great. We started by sharing the flatbread among four of us and it was worth it!

Our food arrived in less than 5 minutes. My salmon and the sauce were cold. I should have sent it back, but I really hate to do that. Big mistake!

Very disappointing. We live right near by and always wanted to give it a try. We ordered a salad to share as an appetizer and the Amish chicken and Halibut. They brought the chicken and Halibut first and then shortly thereafter the salads which we refused to accept.

The Halibut was $38 which would be fine if it were exceptional but it was low level obviously made from frozen.

Unfortunately as convenient as the location is we won’t be back. In my estimation it is a glorified diner with inflated pricing in relation to the quality of the food.

Our go-to restaurant with everything from a fine filet mignon, accompanied by a nice red wine or their special version of deviled eggs or oysters, beers, cocktails. Great place for a small gathering after work. I love the Buffalo Cauliflower and really all their appetizers. The lobster and shrimp curry is a mildly spicy, creamy "gumbo" with rice and yummy veggies added. It does get a bit loud when it's busy, so we mostly like to go at less busy times, but that doesn't affect top-notch the food or service.

You won't be disappointed, and if something isn't right, let them know. They'll fix it.

Good food and service but everything is separate so meal was pretty expensive. Some sides should come with the main dish. Cold near the front windows. Had to wear a jacket

The ambiance was so fun! The area by the bar is a very fun vibe, and towards the back is a more charming, romantic vibe! The food was amazing! Definitely will be going back.

Had to request bread twice, received sliced wheat toast for dinner. Waiter forgot our drinks, and food runner forgot to tell waiter, original waiter took order and disappeared - finally got drinks as we finished dinner. Prime rib not warm. No heaters outside. What's not to like?

Birthday dinner. We shared large prime rib. Delicious! And hot fudge sundae for dessert complete with candle and birthday greeting. We asked for a quiet table and got a booth in the back of the restaurant. Perfect!

Food was good, but no big deal. Cavatelli was best dish. Our server wasn't really on the ball, but the rest of the staff filled in for him.

Food was good but the service was horrendous. The waiter knocked over the milk creamer and milk poured out on me and all over the floor. The waiter never apologized and acted like nothing happened — he stood expressionless and then left. The staff was also slow to take care of the mess and also never made an attempt to apologize. Unlikely I will return for quite sometime. Maybe they need to work out their “post-Covid” staffing kinks. Also, none of the staff wore masks. Even in Florida the staff wears masks.
