I always bring my family here (95 year-old stepmother, 90 year-old cousin.) Both women use walkers - the restaurant staff are always patient and helpful. The aisles are wide enough that they can get around comfortably. The food is very good - seafood and veggies...More

We had Thanksgiving dinner here. It was very good. Everyone got what they wanted. Generous Turkey platter special. Excellent service.

We were looking so forward to eating here. The food was terrible and service was even worse. We waited 35 minutes to be seated and the whole dining experience too almost 3 hours. We will not be returning.

Super yummy food. Everything made fresh to order. Friendly waitstaff. I wanted Salmon but couldn’t get a baked potato until after 4pm so I ordered a burger instead. So perfect! Crisp fries and fresh bread brought to the table. I love this place so much!

We were given a large gift card for this restaurant. My wife love's seafood, so she was excited. It would cover several visits, so this is a cumulative review. Quality of the food was very inconsistent. At least half the meals each time were cooked...More
