I absolutely love this place. It got pretty bad for a while there. However, the new manager has worked very hard to keep her customers coming back. The staff is friendlier and I think it is the best staff they have ever had. I would definitely recommend this place.

This is a good place to eat seafood at a reasonable price. They have many specials you can choose from. Fried baby shrimp is always good and portion size was good. Service is good and wait time for your order is reasonably short.

I have had better, I have had worse, guess it is hard to get quality fish so far inland. there were many patrons present, so maybe we need to give it another chance.

Lots of choices and specials here . We usually get a seafood entree but have to say the chicken parmesan was amazing! Covered generously with cheese and very tasty with a large amount of chicken - enough for 2 people! Have never been disappointed and we eat there at least twice a month. Just tell them to leave half those... More
