Some of the best seafood I've ever had. The owner fly's fresh seafood in from each coast everyday and has it delivered from the airport. Very fresh, so good.

Very nice and some of the best food I've ever had. The chef just won the "best chef in the Midwest" award from their academy. I take my wife here for anniversaries, it was our first date spot too. Expect to spend $100 each, it's worth it though.

Sorry if some of these were covered in previous posts. I love my city and these places represent some of the best places I've ever eaten ate/drank in the country. Everyone one of them is a small business based here in our town and are kicking out great stuff. Give them a try.
