Nothing noteworthy. We ordered shrimp fajitas as well as shrimp enchiladas. So so. We expected a lot more than what we got but for the price it was OK. With some of the options up the street don't bother stopping here.

The service is usually always good. Only had bad service once - said I would never go back after that, but we did. Went at lunch time and for what we paid, the shrimp salad sandwich was bland, didn't have a taste and not worth the price...probably should have ordered something else. A little disappointed, but it was my choice... More

Bland tasteless food, high prices and bad service. It was recommended by some locals but don't bother going there. The dining room was filled with flies and the staff spent more time interacting with each other than with patrons.

If you like shrimp, this is the place to go. Very large and delicious. Enjoyed watching life go by while eating. Only downfall is the bathroom. Small and not the cleanest.
