Seafood Bisque and Manhattan Clam Chowder were loaded with seafood and not too salty. The crab cakes and grouper sandwich were also very tasty. Service was great and will recommend this restaurant to friends!!! Yummy!!

Seafood was especially great. Innovative presentations and a great party atmosphere. Leisurely dinners and a happy place, not much privacy.
