We visited on Mother’s Day and had a very enjoyable meal. The fish was fresh, sides were tasty and service was excellent. The ginger butter on the green beans was truly special. The only reason for four stars for the food was my mashed potatoes were brought out several minutes after the rest of the meal but were barely warm. Will definitely return. More
