Rated 4 out of 5 by One of our dishes with seafood in it was actually really good. We also had a crabpatty sandwich which was just alright. Service was good. Mar 28, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Staff was cordial. Mar 25, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Service was good but food was below par filet mignon for thirty dollars with no sides and steak below quality tastes Aug 31, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by Decor was nice and place was clean. Food was generally ok - nothing really stood out but it was acceptable. Overall, service was good. A/C was on way too high though - very cold. They did allow a food substitution which was good. However, I did not like the fact that the manager automatically tacked on an 18% tip (especially when I was initially given the bill without the automatic tip). Even if it is their policy, it shows pretty bad form, and leaves me with no discretion on how to reward service. Jul 30, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Food was good and presented well, waitress nice Jun 21, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by The place was very quiet (no music playing)... the food was okay, but not great... my dinner did not come with any side dishes or salad (ribs and pulled pork were all that was on my plate). Mar 29, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great service, unexpectedly good food considering it was a hotel restaurant. Jul 17, 2012
