Excellent meal; everyone enjoyed their seafood. Terrific desserts too (I had a nice apple strudel that was just perfect).

Excellent cuisine, nice service, downtown location. Reasonably priced for what you get. Parking lot next door charges $10 to park - not part of the restaurant. Limited parking on the street. Other than that all is well.More
