“Just another restaurant...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2012

The food was OK...not great. We went there because we were told it was owned by Deborah. Deborah has an interest n the place, but does not run it. The food at Deborah's was much better, so this place turned out to be "just another restaurant".

“Great Seafood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2012

My shrimp was delicious but my husband's tamale was not very good. I'd stick to the seafood.

“Slow, and adequate”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2012 via mobile

Nothing to rave about. Slow service, uncomfortably hot with the open flame sautéed shrimp stations at various tables. The drinks are 2x1, but the second drink came only after asking several times-- and after dinner was eaten. The fish was served with head, tail, bones. Not bad, but was a surprise. Uninspired sides (standard baby carrots are the "seasonal vegetables".

The lobster had only about 2 bites.
