This place was suggested to us while staying at the local bed & breakfast. After traveling a few hours were really worked up an appetite. Appetizers: Calamari and Scampi chicken wings. Calamari is my boyfriend favorite. It was FRESH and although Ive never had it served with a spicy mayo is was reallllyy good. Ive never had scampi wings either but I figured "why not?". The wings were crispy and the sauce was just right. Entrees: Roasted Duck and Shrimp Blackened Pasta. I thought the pasta was good, no complaints. Unfortunately, my boyfriend was not a fan of the duck. He felt that the flash frying left the piece of meat crispy on the outside (good) but dry on the inside (bad). He did enjoy the sweet potato wedges, though. He enjoyed the drinks and appetizers so he decided not to make a fuss about the duck. I should note that our meals came with a salad and rolls. I assumed that they would be brought out before the entrees but they were not. Once the entrees were brought out I reminded the waitress and she was very apologetic. It was getting late, she was nice and it wasnt the end of the world. Overall a good experience.

We came back the next night. My boyfriend got the scallops. He loved them! I got the scampi wings again. lol.

Came here yesterday for lunch for the first time. Was surprised by variety on menu. I had Hot Tomales Sliders. They were really good and the homemade chips were great!! Everyone was very pleased by their meals. Pub like atmosphere, good prices and good service. Will go again.
