    Celebrated my wife's birthday and had fantastic appetizers, steaks cooked to perfection, lobster mac and cheese accompanied with cocktails and topped off with their signature triple chocolate cake and a special Mocha Coffee with Bailey's. You won't find a better steak anywhere in town. It was a little pricy, but the meal was extraordinary and well worth it when celebrating a very special occasion.

    I treated my cousin & bestfriend to brunch after church on Sunday. We absolutely loved the entire experience. The customer service, friendliness and attentiveness of the staff was excellent. The presentation, quality, and taste of the food and drinks was 5 stars across the board. The mixologist and Chef Juwan came out to check on us which was an added touch. We highly recommend this place and will definitely be returning to try dinner. They got it right!!!

    The seafood chowder was the best I ever had. The redfish was outstanding. The add-on lobster tail was small and cold, but what do you expect for $20. However, the beef short rib (notice it is "rib" singular, not plural) was literally inedible. It's hard to mess up beef short ribs--and even if they are slightly pink inside, they are supposed to be fall-off-the-bone tender. This one did not have a bone. This one could not be cut into with the knife supplied. Even if I got a small chunk off, it was chewy and tough, and hard to swallow. When I ordered it, the waiter asked me how I wanted it cooked (never been asked that for short ribs) and so, to avoid it being over-cooked I said "medium." When I complained, the waiter said, "Well you ordered it medium so that's why it was the way it was." No, it isn't. It was a charred chunk of beef all the way through. I like the ambience, the wait staff, and the food mentioned above. But do NOT order the short rib. It's awful! And at $42...no way!

    My friend and I picked this restaurant from google. We had a very delicious meal. I order take out for my husband and what they tried to give me was awful but the waiter jumped on it and the manager had them remake his meal. It was the appropriate amount and my husband really liked his meal. I would recommend it. One more thing they don’t have full bar service at lunch time. You can get wine and beer. No cocktails.

    The service for ordering and delivering was extremely slow, but the waitress and waiter were professional. Your food was very good, though a bit pricey. My overall rating in very Good.
