The menu is spectacular. The service is special. The food is unreal. The fish stew is a specialty and take it from me it is the best. Service was very good throughout. Greeted with a smile and name. Very quiet in our area. Really a super nice place. Again, popular place make reservations thru Open Table App or call.

My husband and I were in town for a CE course and had dinner here. We made reservations and were sat promptly. We started with mussels and calamari! Both were fantastic! My husband ate the spider roll for dinner and I had the vegetable ramen. The server was very attentive and happy to adjust the entree to my liking. We... More

Had reservations and watched people without reservations get seated while we had to wait for people to evacuate our "reserved table" while there were two to four open tables the entire half hour plus that we had to wait. Just show up and see if you can charm the hostess. Good Luck!

It was amazing featuring local ingredients and an obvious amount... More

Top notch restaurant, white table clothes, several choices in water. I ordered several of their appetizers instead of an entree. Did not realize that each appetizer was large enough to be an entree by itself. The fried shrimp and calamari was mounded high and large enough to be a meal. The lobster corndogs came 5 to a serving, light cornmeal... More

Look I guess we all have our preferences and this place just doesn't do it for me. The food was extremely tasty with a good selection on the menu. I just felt that it was a little boring. Remember I am only giving my opinion here and I am aware a lot of other people love this place.
