We came for appetizers and we're delighted with delicious choices. The ahi was tender and the crab cake ( recommended to us by a bartender at a local hotel!)was exceptional. We'll return for dinner next trip!

The food here is excellent! I opted for the scallops while my husband chose the redfish which was also good. Service was excellent also. I appreciated the quality food/service without pretense.

Hi there, I ate there last night and had a fine meal. I was really impressed with the bread served with the meal. What could you tell me about the bread? Do you make and bake it there? Any special ingredients or techniques? Thanks much, Ben
