Really good crab cake, and excellent service from Michael and Jannel. This was our second visit to the restaurant and the hotel in which it's located

Thanks for your kind words! We appreciate your visits. Not sure why we did not get a "5" rating which would be consistent with your comments? Thanks again. Thom

Food, service, and recommendations were excellent. Our server was Michael. Our party of four were the only diners. The atmosphere was different. The decor was jumbled. I will go back.

The staff could not be kinder. The food was as good as 5 star restaurants across the country. A must try. Pasta dishes are great. Lobster not overdone

Reasonably priced, generously portioned, pleasantly served southern Italian cooking plus steaks and scallops. Over the top atmosphere. Our server, Darrell, was very helpful and the food was delicious! This restaurant was in the hotel where we were staying and very convenient.
