We’ve been here enough times they seem to know us now! It is worth going back to again and again. It’s a small place that is always packed – reservations are a must at dinner. The beginning cone of schie is hot, crispy and a perfect appetite enhancer. They are helpful in selecting a wine in your price range that is tasty.

From there go with their specials and you can’t go wrong, especially their fish carpaccio. The small soft shell crabs (a nightly special) I had were perfect cooked and enhanced by house made potato chips – a plate of indulgence for sure. The fish also perfectly cooked and wonderfully seasoned. Dessert, also go with their suggestion. Yum!
