We each ordered a Salmon BLT. After one bite, we could tell the fish was bad (old). We told the waitress. She came back and said the fish was good "the cook says so". Are you kidding me?? She never apologized about the meal. Unbelievable.

Could spent 30 minutes just looking at pictures. The food is good. The service was better than average. If you are looking for a nice place that's just a touch different give this a try. I will do it again.

Been here many times. Tonight I had crab cakes and a pad thai. Crab cakes were good, maybe a little bready. They had a great sear, we're topped with pickled, roasted peppers, and came with an awesome lobster cream sauce which was seasoned wondefully. The...More
