Best brisket sandwich I have ever had! Melt in your mouth. Extensive wine, beer, and cinder list—allowed us to sample before choosing. We will be back!

Our hotel recommended this place and set our reservation. It was dark but we had a table by the window and could see the lights of the hotel and water. I had delicious monk fish. Good wine and dessert offerings, save room!
