Was in the area and stopped by for dinner. Have a good allergy and the staff was very attentive. Went for the chowder and it was great. Will be back next time I am in the area.

Visited on a rainy, drizzly night. The wait staff was great. While the menu listed scallops with different sauces, they accommodated my request to get them mesquite grilled, as I had them before. They were excellent, as was the dinner of my two business companions.

The staff was very easy to work with when I arranged a business dinner for a party of 14. Everyone got to order what they wanted. No pre fixe menu required. Miso glazed Chilean sea bass was excellent.
