Chef Shawn and his culinary team proudly present an ever-changing, eclectic menu featuring sustainable Hawaiian fish, steaks, wild game (rabbit, duck, lamb, wild boar, venison, and more), unique appetizers, vegetarian dishes, homemade pastas and desserts. Along with an array of cocktails, interesting wines and craft beers. It's family owned and operated and cleverly hidden in a strip mall just off I-71 in Blue Ash (where only the most astute diners can find them).
