Bob, the Chef and Owner makes a point to come out  from behind the grill and greet his customers. Where else do you get  that kind of attention????"

"I have been here many times and enjoy the professionalism of  the  kitchen staff, bartenders and wait staff.  Probably the best chefs in  the county and surrounding area.  The food is always over the top -  purchased well, prepared well, presented  well and combined with signiture service.  I would recommend this  restaurant to anyone looking for a fine dining experience.  Given the  quality, the prices are very reasonable.  Try it - you'll be back."
