The wife had a terrific glazed pork chop which was truly extraordinary. I had the beef which was just fine but not superb. Service was friendly and timely.

Wonderful dinning experience. The staff was very attentive, but not pushy. Two of our party had the steak and two the fresh seafood catch, both were outstanding. A definite favorite on our list now.
