Loved the atmosphere and the owner coming around to chat after dinner Would have liked to have had the specialy shrimp dish with sauce on the side instead of already on it when it came to the table,.

Had the fish tacos here, they were great! However, two cost me $11! Staff was friendly and attentive. Overall, I would recommend it.
