As usual, the food was impeccable. I had Filet & Lobster & my wife had Crab legs while we split a Wedge Salad. The salad was super fresh & very tasty with just the right amount of Blue Cheese.

Live entertainment (Archie Thompson) was fantastic - he sang, played piano, and also played saxophone! But, it wasn't too loud or intrusive on our dinner...perfect in the background. Although we dined inside, there were tables with fire pits and a lovely atmosphere outside as well.

All-you-can-eat Florida crab was AMAZING, but it was cold and we were expecting it to be served warm/hot. So be forewarned. Still, the taste and quality and preparation were fantastic, and after a few bites, my hubby didn't mind it being cold at all!

Calamari appetizer and lobster bisque were delicious! Filet mignon (7 oz) was wonderful, as were the parmesan mashed potatoes. Corn chowder was scrumptious as well.

Very classy with linens and wine glasses, a selection of things to put in your water (cucumber, orange, lime, lemon, etc.) and an amazing dessert selection. We got carrot cake and chocolate cake and the portions were so huge, we were still eating them (take home) the next day. They were very rich, but I have to say that's the best carrot cake we've ever had!

Service was also impeccable. Waiter (Stuart) was very personable and attentive but not on top of us during the meal. We didn't have to ask for additional crab...when he saw my husband was getting toward the end of one plate, he'd bring and offer another.

Overall, I would recommend for any special occasion where you want to get dressed up and enjoy a romantic evening or a business function. (Sorry my photos aren't better!)

It took 40 minutes from the time we ordered until our salads arrived. Not the steaks, just the salads. Too long.
