Pricy but worth it. Great service. Excellent food. Lobster bisque had large chunks of lobster. Shrimp cocktail had five large shrimp. Swordfish, strip steak and lobster tail entrees were all amazing. And save room for dessert, especially the chocolate cake.

Food is very good, service is as well. Menu selections are average. I prefer to visit earlier due to how loud it can get in the evenings. Prices are on the high end compared to other restaurants of the same caliber.

Don't wear anything you wouldn't wear to church. Shorts, T-shirts and ripped jeans are out! Some dress up but everyone dresses nicely. Don't embarrass your date. Enjoy!!
