When this restaurant was on Market Street it was great but since moving to it's new location on Main Street the quality of the food has gone down, in my opinion. I guess all good things eventually come to an end.

Plenty of parking and seating. Host and wait staff are friendly and work together as a team. Clam chowder was thick, peppery and delicious. We enjoyed the ribs too. Beers are huge!

Nice place, sort of a steakhouse kind of menu. Service is excellent and the price for food is reasonable.
