    Jimmy is the best waiter of any restaurant we go to. Ask for him and be willing to wait for his great service and demeanor. You will not be disappointed as we have not been for the last 8 years here.

    Fantastic Sunday brunch! A little pricey but worth it if you love seafood. Crab cakes, cavatappi pasta and crab legs are a must.

    They have an OK beer list for a place you wouldn't go for beer. Try the founders IPA from Michigan, it's the good stuff.
