Arrived at 9:15 and were turned away. I informed the hostess that their website indicated that they were open until 10:00. She told me that the restaurant was not responsible for... More

This laid back, but excellent restaurant, was recommended to us almost 3 weeks ago, It was so good that my wife and I went back 2 nights ago. We had 3 different fish dishes. All were prepared wonderfully well. The lemon hummus appetizer was unusual, but quite tasty and well worth ordering. Perfect for two. The waiters, as well as... More

Very good food at this local restaurant. Good variety on menu. Busy in season but takes reservations. Off season has many BOGO items if you ask when ordering.

Sunday Pot Roast (which I believe is actually on the menu everyday) is fantastic. We were a large group and the restaurant accommodated us kindly, provided excellent service, and everyone enjoyed their meals.

We stopped in for a dinner, without a reservation, so needless to say we had to wait 15 minutes before getting seated. When we ordered from the menu, we saw that the prices were much higher than what was shown on their website. I asked the server, and she said that the menu has changed. Also read in the paper...

Had another delicious gathering with friends. Every thing was perfect and we all enjoyed our dinners. Wayne, Stephen, and Christian were rocking and never missed a beat. Great job as always, RCG!
