It's been quite some time since my last visit to this place :) it did not disappoint. Staff were friendly and the food was delicious. The atmosphere is wonderful and it gives you that "beach feel". Truly enjoyed our visit and will return.

We started with Calamari and gator for appetizers a little small for almost $12 price. However, the sauce they serve with the gator was really good, nice little kick. We then moved on to the man vs food... More

The flame grilled oysters that they are known for were really good. I'm not a big seafood person or oyster person but these were amazing.

On the way back home I was craving steamed shrimp so the husband & I stopped for an early dinner. Our waitress, Amanda, was very attentive & hospitable. The food was delicious, although the husband was disappointed that they no longer have the shrimp trio. Amanda asked the occasion & we told her we were celebrating my birthday. She brought... More

The service and food was good, but I found the prices too high. Over $20 for a crab claw appetizer is ridiculous! Not sure if we will be back or not....
