"Great food and service. Started with the soup trio. What a great idea. The clam chowder was lukewarm, but the french onion and lobster bisque was perfect. I had the seafood trio (tuna, shrimp, scallops) with asparagus and truffle fries, and the Mrs had the sirloin with a baked potato. Cooking on the rock is awesome. Perfect every bite. The baked potato was huge. No room for the awesome-looking desserts. Will definitely go back, and soon." - Travellin2havefun, TripAdvisor.

"Outdoor Dining. What is a beautiful day on the River Walk without a great meal outside. The swordfish is magnifique! A classic spin on chicken incorporates brick. Who knew! Add some lardons on top of that. Listen, this new American-style restaurant did not disappoint. Vegan??? Brussel sprouts are to die for or the broccoli even. Don't forget to try the cornbread. Portions are hefty so bring your appetite!" - Inspire26118, TripAdvisor.
