Nothing special to eat. The staff was nice and building beautiful. Seafood basket - just ok fried Risotto - really mushy and tater tots just like orita Do not let the “fresh” fool you. We ate it - but will not go back

Salads were excellent. We had the Steak and Blue Cheese and the Grilled Shrimp and Chicken. Both were plenty for dinner. Wine and Beer were on the high side, price wise....but service in the bar was excellent.

Great menu, great chef, good service. Full bar with specialty drinks. I miss the duck on the menu(it was phenomenal) but there is plenty more on the menu. Fantastic atmosphere. Play a little corn hole on the lawn while you wait for your table.

This restaurant is in a historic home. The spaces are quirky, but lovely. The food was average, but their classic dessert for 2 (Bananas Foster) was amazing!

I have always had great luck with the seafood dishes here (grouper, salmon, and calamari have been fantastic), and I love the beautiful old home renovated into the restaurant and the outdoor area is fantastic. The specialty cocktails are excellent, and the staff is fantastic....More
