They did a great job decorating the table and adding a hand written note for my son's birthday. They also brought him his own dessert plate.

The restaurant was crowded - due to this, we had to wait 45 minutes or so for our meal - The manager noted this and came to out table twice before comping our meal - would recommend restaurant to everyone - thanks

Food outstanding place clean no Clorox smells price a bit high but worth it problem we have been pegged to sit at a particular table all the way in the back when we have said not once not twice but several times and it is stated o our open table suggestions we prefer to sit where there’s ambiance - I hope this issue has been resolved

The food was excellent! Had the filet and the porterhouse ! Both were perfectly done . The lobster bisque was excellent as well. The deserts we enjoyed were the coconut pie and chocolate cake both were great! I will say the wine Captin recommended a good wine and the waiter was above average and made the dinner more enjoyable! He was an outstanding at what he did!
