During the week, this is a dependable lunch spot. Come the weekend, the napery and bud vases appear, along with board-bound menus featuring cuisine that’s buzzworthy among the community’s recreational eaters. Our three faves: green-sauced enchiladas stuffed with fresh poblano chile and sprinkled with queso fresco; a salad of baby greens, strawberries, and pecans elevated by an excellent balsamic vinaigrette; and Key lime pie with a perfect balance of tangy citrus filling and crunchy crust. In fact, we’ve eaten our way through most of the dishes offered with only one minor hiccup: skip the tempura shrimp. The surf and turf, however, featured the best damn steak we’ve eaten recently: a good sear, rare inside, tender and juicy, with a buttery-beefy flavor. It came with steamed asparagus and criminally good mashed potatoes. We left sated and already planning our next visit. Local wines are featured, by the glass or bottle, at a fair price. The restaurant does get noisy when crowded, but you can retreat to a small, casual screened porch. Ask the owner about the peacock motif for a charming glimpse into this family-owned business.
