current times take away from the really great atmosphere - they are doing the best they can - but liked the old outside seating better.

Celebrated our 32nd wedding anniversary with two of our older children. Seating outside was very nice although could have used more decorations or plants or candles to improve ambience. I had the jumbo shrimp and spaghetti and was just average for $32! Did not even include a salad. My son had fish and chips which was good and my wife had swordfish which she enjoyed. Overall good experience and would probably come back sometime. Would recommend some improvements to decor and ambience and pricing should be appropriate for what you get. We enjoyed the trout dip with freshly sliced chips and grilled brussels sprouts. Waitress was very friendly and pleasant.

Even though they did not get our correct reservation via OpenTable for 3 people outside, they were able to accommodate us. Food was great, just as it has been for takeout many times during this strange pandemic period. Not a great table for just 3, but worked out fine for us. I felt that we occupied too big of a table for just 3 for too long. It was great food and service! A nice evening. Definitely will be back!

Went for our 43rd Anniversary. Excellent service and the food was phenomenal! They also have us an anniversary gift. We requested outside seating. Very comfortable, would suggest outdoor ceiling fans. Chef is very creative. Will definitely be back!

Delicious!! My mom and I had a coupon for two free entrees, so we decided to check it out. She got the scallops and raved about them- said they were the BEST thing she’s ever eaten. I had the deluxe salad with salmon which was super fresh and yummy! The salmon had a nice crispiness on top and the salad dressing was homemade. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a yummy meal in downtown Aiken:)

It was great to be able to dine out at a restaurant instead of relying on take-out during our "lockdown". To enjoy a very hot burger and hot fries was heaven. The food is great and the staff is following all guidelines set forth to dine-out. The covered patio was wonderful. Looking foward to dining out again.
