This is just an OK place. The food is good, but the service and management could use some training. If you eat there, you'll be alright, but when I go out to eat, I want to be AWED. There is no atmosphere here, even though...More

Be awhile, TO LONG, since we`ve been here. Forgot how good this place is. The seafood chowder as an opener, only begins a great meal. Desi only seems to improve this tavern. No wonder a reservation is for the most part, needed.
