Chowder was thick and tasty. Halibut and Chips was delicious—coating was light, not greasy, and didn’t interfere with the flavor of the halibut. Port was terrific and priced at a value; wish I had a cigar with me!

Thought this place had improved. Nope! Ordering seafood or chicken you are ok. Don’t waste $$$ on steak. Only other positive is the deserts. Those are really good.

That is a really good question! I wish I knew the answer. They are decor pieces that our general manager found and I am unsure what they are called. Thanks for checking in, I am curious now as well!
