"I was reticent to come here after all the negative reviews I read outside of Open Table, however I decided to give this place a try anyways. My first request was the She crab soup, and of course they were out. This seems to happen to me no matter where I go.
We decided to go for the Drunken Mussels and the Slab of Bacon. The mussels were WAY too salty and the bacon was over cooked and tough. Both were underwhelming to say the least. The only thing that was mildly enjoyable was the cole slaw that came with the bacon. Then came the Porterhouse with a side of garlicky spinach and fries. THANK GOD they didn't screw up the steak or this meal would have been a complete bust. The spinach was insanely good and but the fries reminded me of BK fries.

"We went to this restaurant for New Years eve dinner and it went very well. I enjoyed all my courses which included calamari, pear gorgonzola salad, duck and chocolate mousse....the value and amount were well worth the price for the 4 courses. The inside is cute and they sat us near the fireplace and away from the live jazz which would have been way too loud for us. The servers were very nice and adequately attentive. We did hear a nearby table complain that they werent getting served often enough, but then they had the open bar option. I would go back!"
