We ate dinner last week and the food and service were outstanding. Both had lazy man's lobster, which is the only way to eat lobster, no mess, and it was wonderful. We had a waitress that was fantastic and would highly recommend this place.

No one pays me to write a review. I do it so others can see where I have eaten and give them my impression. I did neither use the men's room here nor did I have dirty silverware.
