Ordered scallops wrapped in bacon and crab cakes. Both were very good. I had not been there in several years. I was pleasantly surprised. Very clean and the cocktails were also excellent! I will be back soon.

This was the first time me and my parents went out for dinner in over a year. We were very impressed. The wait staff were very polite and wore masks appropriately. The spacing of tables also seemed appropriate. Our meals were served timely and not rushed, and cooked to order. Everything tasted great!

Just nothing to really compliment. The servers weren't rude they just weren't very good or attentive and the food was so disappointing. Won't return/can't recommend.

Horrible in all aspects the food wasn't cooked properly and there was no care about the service. Long wait to leave hungry. Hostess was very professional but that's it as she did the managers job.

The food was not worth the price. My dinner- crab stuffed flounder with parmesan risotto and asparagus- lacked flavor. Service was slow.

The food was good, but the Vanilla Bean Shrimp was not worth the money. They give you 3 large sized shrimp with some crab meat on top. The potatoes were good but no flavor other than potato and 4 asparagus stalks.

The taste of vanilla was a little off-putting, wouldn't leave my mouth for hours and began to remind me of warm vanilla sugar but as if I licked lotion. Rheur house salad was blah but the bread was fantastic.

My husband got steak with crab and said it was good but comparable to Longhorn.

The Staff were very nice and attentive, ambience was great, overall the experience was good.

They had a limited menu for Valentines day which was fine but had run out of alot of the big items that were on the menu. Our waitress was a bit slow and a little impersonable, but the atmosphere and food was outstanding.

Valentines Day Bust.

Nice looking.
Apps were good.
Filet Oscar was terrible. Loaded with tarragon. Way underdone.
Won’t be back.

We had Paul as our server and he was amazing and patient with our many questions. On request the Chef made an appetizer that wasn't available that day (Valentine's day) that we love!! The bartender made a scratch jalapeno mule for my husband , he loved it! We will return!! Thank you!

We had been going here years ago, but moved away. So glad to be back and enjoy it once again. Always a great choice for the food and value, but also the quiet, understated experience, as well.

Food was prepared wrong - average at best and otherwise over priced
Ordered a “22” oz ribeye and it looked to be maybe 12-14 oz.
Nothing was offered to be done after they messed up the order
Wouldn’t recommend
