We stopped by the restaurant on a spur of the moment decision and are glad we did. The menu was impressive and the prices reasonable. My lady and I tried different types of combination plates recommended by our server and the food was really good....More

The food here is great, loved everything we ordered. Our waitress was very friendly and very attentive. I would give more stars if it wasn't so run down. It needs some updating
