Excellent food! The seafood is outstanding and the steak was amazing. Came here with a large group (26) and they accommodated, with reservations of course. Usually with a large group, it's hard to make everyone happy at a restaurant, but not here....everything was near perfection!

My wife and I recently had dinner here with another couple. Our experience I'm afraid was impacted by a large family dining just several tables away. Our entire meal was accompanied by the screams of a young person at this other table. Not once did...More

Yes. My wife follows a gluten free diet, and Mr. P's has a number of choices that are just as good as the rest of the menu.
