We had dinner here a few times, each time ordering something different, and have had wonderful dinners and very nice service each time. Flounder or Prime Rib are excellent meals. We have also bought gift certificates for family and friends.

Come early as people in the area support this restaurant because of the great food that is served. Somewhat pricey and the atmosphere is loud but a nice night out.
