Came for an early dinner. Had the steamed mussels which were excellent along with a glass of petite sirah wine. For dessert had the amaretto cheesecake which was fabulous. Beautiful views of the harbor.

We were able to sit in the front overlooking the harbor! Beautiful! The wine list was great. Lobster Bisque excellent! Filet and Bison were cooked perfectly. Lobster twice baked potato could feed 4! Huge and unbelievably good. Highly recommend for an awesome meal and ambience!
