We were visiting from CA for a couple days. The view was great...waitress was super friendly and accommodating. We both got house salads - fresh, huge and delicious. We added a side of fried shrimp that were cooked perfectly! Highly recommend!

Good per usual
Doing COVID correctly as far as I can tell . Staff wore masks correctly. Not using disposable menus so bring hand sanitizer. Fried shrimp basket is lightly battered and good, served with good fries. I think they changed up the slaw which is a good...change in my opinion . Their Manhattan drink and the Old Fashioned tasted pretty much ... read more

This spot was so good that I came back the next day for dinner! I got the 5 spice duck burger with cucumber & onion salad. The burger was delicious. They seasoned it well and the glaze on it was really good. My favorite was the cucumber and onion salad. The cucumber was still crunchy and the brine wasn't heavily vinegary. It was very ... read more

We made a quick stop to grab a drink and appetizer before our reservation elsewhere. Although we waited for outside seating, it was worth it as the sunset was extraordinary! The food was great. The drinks were too. We honestly should have stayed out. This would have been much better than the other place.

Visited 3 times while we were in town. Pretty great bartenders, server not so much. We got our appetizer and dinner before our (first) drinks. Overall, I’ve missed coming and missed the food, but the service used to be so much better. The two times with the best service is when we sat at the bar. Thanks bartenders.

Food was just good. They would not let me make slight changes to a couple of the entrees that I was interested in. So I just went with the nachos which were suppose to be 'huge and awesome'. They were average in size and taste. The cocktail I order sounded good but was bland and overpriced. My wife would give a 4 for the ribs an ... read more
