The food was excellent. We just did a bunch of appetizers to be able to try more. Large drink selection and GREAT service. The bar tender took care of our table. I LOVE the booths. They were very comfortable.

As a seafood restaurant, it was not especially notable. There were many kinds of fish, prepared in several ways, on the menu. Also some chicken and pasta dishes. I had one of the specials of the day, trout, and it was fine but not exceptional....More
