Date night with the Wife
Great atmosphere! Small in size so I suggest a lager group get reservations. We went early and had no problem. This is the second time dining here and once again the food was outstanding!! I highly recommend !!

Must Do When in Town
Whenever you're in South Boston, put this on your must do list. The menu was a good size with a little something for everyone; fish, steaks, pasta, vegetarian, etc. The service was par excellence. Food was delicious and beautifully presented. Casual dress is ok.

This casual but attractive space with a sophisticated and energetic vibe had an original menu with mouth watering combinations that made decision making a challenge. Plus it was a delightful surprise to find such a variety of excellent seafood on the menu. The New England Clam Chowder ( with delicious shellfish extras) was absolute perfection!

I love this place!
This restaurant is a gem in South Boston, VA. For a formal dining experience it's great for evening dinners, date nights and venturing out to enjoy something new. I love that there is a lighter fare menu if you're not completely starving. I enjoy the atmosphere and the bartender Stacy is very attentive. You will not be disappointed.

Fantastic place to eat after a busy day at Virginia International Raceway. Food was great and so was the beer, ate at the bar as the place was full.
