We live in Decatur, IL - about 35 miles from here - my husband made reservations for a Saturday night for my 52nd birthday dinner. Happy to say, it was perfect!!! We arrived a little early, and were seated in approximately 5 minutes. Our waiter was very attentive, but not overly so. I enjoyed the shrimp cocktail appetizer - my husband had the oysters Rockefeller - some of the best he has had. He chose the seafood stuffed blackened Tilapia and I had the filet/lobster tail combo. Both were delicious! For dessert we split the brownie/ice cream selection and coffee. The prices are lower than our local Red Lobster and the seafood and steaks were delicious. There were several larger parties, some with children. They did have a childrens menu and the atmosphere is fine for a family wanting an evening out with something other than the usual chain restaurant food. This would be a great place to take young teens/older kids and teach them some table manners and some points on finer dining.
If you go for a special evening out, be sure to make reservations and ask for a table by the window - we were not disappointed. We are huge proponents of buying local, so it is a bonus to have such a wonderful place and be able to support a local business!
Dine here - I don't think you will be disappointed!
