    Not your typical bar/restaurant.. in a good way. Portions were amble, food was solid and drinks were bountiful. Air conditioning could have used an upgrade, and the food runner could use a lesson in how to serve customers, but the waitress was so awesome, it didnt matter and we left happy.

    Visiting for a family wedding. The burger was delicious! Great flavor. Also enjoyed the Robison salad. The zucchini appetizer was a little bland, really needed the sauce. Our waiter, Ryan, was friendly and attentive. Would definitely return

    Our server, Marissa, was absolutely delightful! Even if the food was awful, which it absolutely was not, she would have still made me want to come back again and again! The swordfish special with chorizo risotto and broccolini was amazing!! Cooked to perfection. As was the buratto and prosciutto. Short ribs, fish n' chips, fish tacos, calamari never disappoint. Thanks for a lovely evening!

    This place is very pretty inside and has a good outside seating area, though it was too hot/humid for us to enjoy. We thought the food was OK - but the service was great. We ordered the cheesesteak spring rolls and pretzels to start - pretzels were great but cheesesteak spring rolls weren't too cheesy. My husband had the Robinson salad and it looked to be mostly greens with a beautiful piece of salmon and not much else. I had the crab cake appetizer for dinner and they were VERY small - smaller than what I imagined. Our friends had the Caesar salad with chicken and the turkey burger and both looked great. And the strawberry sangria was AMAZING. Overall I'd go back for drinks and ambiance, maybe an app or two.

    Subpar service. Our waiter was nice, but not very attentive—it was a slow Wednesday night (not many patrons), so it was a bit annoying to have to flag the server down for water refills & the check. I would def give it another try bc the place is pretty & has a good menu. Food itself was very good.

    This was our first visit here. We ordered drinks and a couple of appetizers. Both were small in quantity.. but sufficient for us. A cheese assortment and buffalos shrimp. The cocktail was good . We also had cappuccino which was excellent. Nice staff and attractive environment. Would definitely return and have a larger meal

    Our party of six had a great time. The appetizers were excellent as we enjoyed the drunken cams and spicy calamari. Everyone had a different entree. I had the half order of baby back ribs which was substantial. We were well pleased and will definitely be back.
