One of my family's favorite go to places. I love their fried calamari - delicate and flavorful. The grilled salmon is excellent and they have many great dishes to choose from.

Went here for a late lunch today. The food was delicious, and the service was great. I had the clams and my daughter had the lasagna. Will come again.
