Salmon was a little over cooked, snapper was definitely over cooked. Berry cobbler was superb. Chocolate banana bread pudding ok. Service and ambiance was excellent. Very popular with locals. Small but nice bar area.

Eaten here many times. Delicious food, excellent Service. Place is small-call for reservations for sure. Only had the steaks. Rib eye fabulous, filet mignon with Cabernet sauce is also a winner. Again-food/service outstanding, but overpriced

Stopped in after a soak at the springs. We had a rib eye, filet and a special pizza for our grandson. The steaks were the best we have had at a restaurant if some time. The service was very good. We will definitely go back.

The beet salad needed salt and the ribeye was lacking flavor, but the salmon was perfect and the bread pudding was a satisfying end to the meal.

Not sure the question was directed to me. I have no control over what the restaurant serves, so I can't answer.
