“Excellent food if you can get in! ”
Reviewed 9 November 2013 via mobile

Love, love, love. Great menu, drinks are so good . The only thing that keeps this from being 5 stars is it's only open certain times... Hard to make reservations as you have to leave a message.

“Great find!”
Reviewed 21 October 2013

When we looked it up for reviews and asked locally the reviews from both sources were very mixed. We however decided to try it anyway and were very pleased we did.
It is located in the Calvert Marina Complex in Solomons and on the second (top) floor of a brick building looking west towares the Pautuxent R. and the Johonson arch bridge. We ate late but had a lovely view of the harbor and other lights on the horizon. the menue was exrtensive, with good variety and creativity. The service was attentive and friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and, as an added bonus, there was live music from a jazz guitar player, who was also very good.

Overall a surprise and a very enjoyable experience!

“Not going back”
Reviewed 26 July 2013

We went there when they first opened, Things should be good then but they were lacking. Party of 5, composed of 4 adults and one child. None of us considered going back. I had the worst chicken almondine thing. Even my un-picky hubby thought it was gross.Tough over cooked steaks. Cocktails were not good either.
