Great Seafood

The Service is fast and the staff is courteous, Good selection of Seafood. If you're the land lover in the family,that's not a problem either. It's a very clean Establishment, the bathroom was clean as well. Very affordable.

I am always shocked at the amount of food you get on a plate here. This evening I even got a daily special and still had a full meal and full to go box left. My wife, my two children and I ate all we could hold and still walked out the door with three to go boxes full for... More

I always experience great service when I eat there. The food is always hot and the wait time has always been short for prepared to order food. You will find it noisy at meal time because the folks who eat there are many and varied from kids crying to old folks jabbering and groups laughing. This is a good time... More

Every time I eat here I find hair in my food. The parts of the food that don't have hair were actually really good.

This place can get a bit expensive with dinner, but what seafood place doesn't? I love their daily lunch specials. They are very courteous and you never have to wait for seating. It is great.
