I had the cobia which was excellent. We were with 16 friends and all were pleased with the service and food provided for such a large group. The atmosphere was a little spartan but the waitress was friendly and efficient. I was surprised how delicious...More

Well. Great atmosphere, upscale. Interesting menu. Southern Fried Yuppie. Taste? NO! I had a very negative experience. Greasy, salty, unappealing combination of flavors. Mixed drink? No, that didn't work either. Sorry, I really wanted to like this place.

Had lunch with a friend. Food was very good but service was not as good as it used to be. If they could step up service it would be great.

This doesn't impress upon entering but WOW the food is great. Desserts are homemade, large and fantastic. We had the best coconut cake ever. Recommended by hotel.

Get the chocolate fried pie for dessert. It is not what you think. It is not like a McDonald's fried pie. It is actually a flaky pastry filled with gooey ganache!
