A group of 8 of us arrived close to closing time & they accomidated us very well. The bread/oil dip kept us satisfied until the food came out pretty quick. Everyone loved their food & we appreciated them staying late.

Great place in Cape Girardeau with a mid price menu. Outstanding service and the food quality is perfect. Love their Lobster Bisque, wonderful salads, pizza, and pasta dishes are some of the best in Cape Girardeau!

Food is delicious. Especially the bread they bring to the table with some oil and cheese. Atmosphere is pretty classy, though the paper on the tables throws off the romantic vibe it could have. But overall it's a winner!

Why go to a chain restaurant when you can enjoy great food in the historic district? Portions are large, the food is prepared one dish at a time.
