Crab cakes to die for. 14 oz steak with mac and cheese with bacon was excellent. Shared the entree and we could not finish it. Eric was our server. He was very attentive. Great dining experience.

Great nightcap at Stars even with the rain. Stopped here after dinner to watch the Football game. Tv at the bar was perfect and under cover from the rain.

Just before sunset, we spent a few hours drinking Gin & Tonics on this wonderful rooftop. A few days later we returned with friends to have dinner in the downstairs dining room. Very enjoyable waitress and atmosphere. Food was delicious with great Wine selection.
