We could not have enjoyed this place more! From the drinks to the appetizer (lobster spinach dip) to the main courses (steaks), this restaurant hit every note. Definitely will return!

The meals were expensive and tasteless! I have that better tasting trout at Cracker Barrel! My husband said his prime rib did not have much flavor and the potatoes were just plain. The signature pineapple martini, tasted like straight pineapple juice, not sure where the vodka was. My friend enjoyed her fish tacos but ordered a side of cider cold... More

Friends recommended we try this restaurant so we took their advice and visited last week. We were seated first table on the left as you enter the main dining area which proved to be a "busy" area with a constant stream of diners and wait staff brushing by our table. I had no problem but my date was less than... More

Made a reservation with restaurant indicating that we were celebrating a birthday. Indifferent hostess only acknowledged reservation when we pointed it out to her. Tried to seat us at the worst table even though several nice tables were available. No one mentioned our birthday. What has become of customer service??

I've been here several times with co-workers visiting from out of town. We have never been disappointed. The food is great, staff very professional and friendly, as well as accommodating with special requests.

My experience was no very good. Everytime. I've been there several times over the last year or so, and it's the same problem. Very loud and long wait for a table. You have to shout in order to be heard. Also, if you have to wait for dinner, they ask for your cell number so they can text you. I... More

Night out with friends to celebrate anniversary. The coconut shrimp was amazing. My husband said the mahi mahi was a nice portion and flavorful. The salmon was moist and the fried spinach was something I never had before. Try it! The servers take really good care of you and I love to sit near the kitchen to watch the fire.... More

I had a business lunch here and it is in a good location and great atmosphere. Whether you sit in the restaurant, bar or on high tops in the bar area it is great. We both had a Ceaser Salad, me with chicken and her with salmon. both meals were great, as well as, service.
