This was my husband and my third time here, this time to attend the Oyster Festival. While I thought the oysters were a tad price-y, the staff was terrific, attentive and fast and I am over the top with their pale rose wine.

We were here for a wedding in December 2017. Absolutely gorgeous setting. Very nice wine as well. Food was nice also. We had a great time and would recommend to come here for a wine tasting.
