Excellent service thanks to the very attentive, patient, and lovely Morgan. Although I have always had exceptional service here, I thought Morgan was the very best.

Even though I was enjoying my perfectly cooked salmon that followed my cup of the area’s finest clam chowder, I was surprised my guests were unhappy with their shrimp as each one was hard like little rocks.

They coconut cream pie was decadent and luscious as well the wonderful scoops of coconut sorbet. But the highlight was the service. Morgan was awesome!!!

This was the perfect setting for date night. The wait staff surprised us with a gift for our anniversary, and they were all very polite, courteous, and engaged. The food was superb: wonderful presentation, delightful tastes, plenty per serving and enough to share.

Have been here several times for lunch. The grilled shrimp and veggie orzo was not as good as I had hoped. The 4 shrimp were somewhat small and kind of chewy. The corn chowder was great though. And always love their crackers and bread. Somewhat a good price - $20. Got a nice surprise treat for a birthday dessert.

We were celebrating our daughter’s 21st birthday. Our server Linda went out of her way to make her feel like a VIP. We had a wonderful dinner and enjoyed a Cabernet that was recommended. We all had filets and they were cooked perfectly. We added a lobster tail to share and it was divine. We didn’t order dessert, but a special dessert was brought out for our daughter. Perfect evening out for a special occasion.

Dined here for my daughter's graduation from Georgetown grad school. Felt like we absolutely picked the right place for our special occasion, especially when the restaurant provided our daughter with a wonderful special dessert plate that said "Congratulations" and some champagne for the table to go with it. We so appreciated this kind gesture!!
