The restaurant had a great atmosphere, very polite and helpful staff, and live music playing. The shrimp appetizer and large crab cakes were particularly good, and you cannot miss the crime brûlée dessert.

Booked an hour before no problem. Arrived and restaurant was 2/3rds full. Good service. We both had fish, good quality but unusually for US the portions were small. Good wine list & catered for non dairy. Recommended

Casual but nice. Think cute shirt, jeans and wedges.
I can't navigate in the menu to see anything besides slips. What up trip advisor?
