We had a PreMeet and Mingle Dinner

Before we went on our Cruise we met here with 20 others from the Cruise Critic Group. The food was very nice and the service was very quick. They had punchbowl sized Drinks. The seafood was excellent and fesh. Would go back here next time in the area.

The atmosphere is really nice and happy hour is pretty interesting. The food was just ok and luke warm when it should have been hot. The wait staff is terrible and really need to at least act like they want you there for more than a tip. My recommendation is go to Bravo instead.
