Great place for a surf and turf platter. The atmosphere was pleasant and the food was awesome. The price was adequate for all the food served for just the two of us. Highly recommend this place.

The portions were huge, the service was "forgettable" (he never could remember our requests and totally screwed up the next table's order). The food was OK, but everything was fried. Great if you are not on a diet. I did like the Cranberry/Tea mix

The Ahi Tuna ap and meal great. So was the calamari ap. Steak so-so, hated the Pollack fish and batter. Mojito good. Banana daiquiri blah. Service in hurry to get order but never returned to check on us. Better food and prices elsewhere.
