Great menu of good solid food

Service is the best and food was tasty and a treat. Local favorites on the menu, not your usual faire normally found on the East Coast! You cannot go wrong, priced right and experience well worth the visit.

we particularly liked the signature dish Conch-Shrimp-Octopus - this was quite good and interesting. Besides, the folks working there were joyful and not all the time on their smart phones... also good, we felt welcome, thanks
