Service was exceptional; entrees were pretty good but small (perhaps okay for ladies’ appetites but not for guys) and pricey. Bread pudding was delicious.

Wonderful food. Both the Crab Stuffed Rockfish and the Filet Mignon perfect. The service was a little slow but not bad. I will come back.

Perfect mussell's and tons of great fries. Love the extra sauces. Have had 2 versions of mussells. Plan to give back and try them all, to determine my favorite. That will be a challenge! Great waiter, Tollie.

We had a reservation; we were seated on the patio per our request. It was at a couch, fire pit area. After 20 minutes we had to ask someone to come over and take our order. No one would make eye contact. I hate to be like that but it’s 6:30pm and I need a glass of wine. Once we got a server, it was great!!
