The inside was really nice. They had a great food selection. I had the tilapia. It was very tasty. The sides to share were awesome. I loved the Brussels Sprouts! The staff were very nice and helpful.

We brought a large group here for a special dinner. Service and food were very good. Mixed drinks were dicey, so I would stick to beer and wine. They have options from burgers to high-end seafood and our large, diverse family had a great time....More
