We were there when a storm came through. The employees jumped into action and lowered the plastic panels to keep everyone dry. The bar is really nice and has a creative, upscale drink menu. The food was wonderful. It was a really nice experience.

We visited 3 time in one week, twice for lunch, and once for dinner. Friendly, helpful service; nice location. We only ate outside but enjoyed each visit - the mussels especially! Gets quite busy at lunchtime, as it is very popular

We dined here and really enjoyed our dinners. My husband had Brazilian stew and my son and I had grouper fish cakes. All very delicious. We also had lobster bisque which was very good. Busy place, we had a reservation and didn’t have to wait.
