The staff are super friendly and welcoming. Our waitress noticed we were from out-of-state and made us feel right at home. She recommended items from the menu, and came around to check on us. The food ROCKS!

Pro-tip: 4pm to 6pm, appetizers are half-price! Portion sizes are big enough to actually be meals! Go for the crab nachos!
