The food was good but it wasn't fantastic. The restaurant can be loud and very busy. The views of the water are fantastic.

We were with you about a month ago and my wife had a plate of Asparagus with chicken on it. She has talked about it ever since. We live 150 miles from you so before we drive down for dinner, I wanted to make sure that you still had that on the menu. Please let me know. Thanks..................Dot and Tony Klein
