The restaurant has a lovely view of the bay. The service was great and the food delicious! I highly recommend this restaurant. Just be aware that it's tricky to find the restaurant if you are not familiar with the location, but well worth it!

We celebrated our son's 16th birthday here and had an excellent dinner - the buffalo shrimp is a must - as well as great service. The staff went out of their way to make it a birthday to remember!

The place and the food are amazing but the staff wouldn't wait for us to finish our dishes to try to tá away the plates. Overall it's a good place to go to, just watch your plates

I was able to see the prices on the menu by pulling up the menu in a pdf format. I would say average prices for a dinner entree would be around $25. Beef prices hit me as being very high--I'm not looking to spend $40 for a... More
