Been going there for many years and never had a bad meal. The apps are all great especially Asian potstickers. Terrific steaks and seafood and a real busy bar scene. You cant miss at this solid restaurant.

Casual dress is fine, including shorts. Almost every restaurant in Downtown Delray Beach is casual since it is a Beach town.
