My wife and I had an incredible meal at this restaurant. The food was absolutely amazing. The lobster roll and fries reminded me of being in Maine. The halibut was cooked perfectly-something that doesn't happen that often. We also shared a burratta and watermelon salad...More

I've eaten at this fine dining spot in Cherry Grove several times and had great meals each time. The chef is really good. It's expensive but the food and service are worth it to me. The setting is lovely. I highly recommend it.
