The menu was a nice assortment of breakfast and lunch meals. Some of the meals were good others missed the mark. Hamlet omelet was way too salty and the shrimp and grits weren't that great. The salmon and risotto, waffle and local ice cream were very good. The outside seating was unacceptable, our table was on a horrible incline and the hostess thought nothing of seating us there. I moved the table to where it was more level. The waiters are always excellent.

Scallops with beet risotto was good. Steak was a little overdone and even though it was a sirloin was not very tender. Vegetables with the steak were very poor. Just a pile of onions and bell peppers. Neither of which I like.

Unfortunately, the noise level was ear-splitting (indoors, front room, table 5). Could not hear the person across the table from me without shouting. Spent most of dinner praying that the other diners in the room would hurry up and leave so we could enjoy the rest of our evening.

However, we sat in the covered outdoor section off the dining room. It is a relatively dismal area. I don’t mind sitting outside. I knew that was where we were going to be seated. However, the covered section off the main entrance is a much more attractive place to be seated. Also, just like most restaurants in these past several months, dinner was very expensive. $50.00 for a steak. Ouch! Regardless, I will absolutely visit again.

Food was very good especially the crap dip, the fried cheese, cream of crab, and the ribeye! The tacos were way too spicy. The fish and risotto were very bland and under seasoned and the cheesecake was awful. Overall it was still a wonderful night and we can't wait to revisit.

As it filled up it became very noisy, especially with people drinking, which it is a lot of wine to be drank if you do the pairings with your meals. However I found the food to be excellent, my husband said it was very good. He liked the local better. I got a glass of wine when I sat down and unfortunately that did not count towards my pairings and I was charged extra for this class of wine. But as I said the food was good and the waiter was attentive until we finished our last plate before dessert. At this point we waited quite a while for dessert to be served. Then after dessert we waited again to ask for the check. We waited about a half an hour for our card to be taken and processed so we could leave. From the time our desert was served and we left it was a full hour. We actually started timing it.
