We enjoyed our first visit so much we came back the next night! Met the chef and got so much detail on the bacon wrapped chicken brochettes--delicious. We don't eat oysters but apparently the many varieties of servings are very popular with the locals. Football...More

The barbecue was great along with the atmosphere. It was a nice change from the rowdy crowds at surrounding bars when it came time to relax and have a good meal.

We went here with friends before a game. The guys working there were very friendly and courteous. The service was very slow, and the food was overpriced and just average quality. Some of our friends had appetizers and said they were good.
