Okay but sent back scollops and great stew. Many like it but just okay. Lobster fine desert okay. Can't reck vanilla. Green beans fresh. If this is the best I will go to other towns like sears and eat at Generals.

I ordered the scallops with a balsamic glaze and it was like something I would make at home. No, I could've probably made better balsamic sauce. The blueberry pie, although good, was too sugary for me. You could c the sugar on the crust -...More
