“Fresh Seafood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2011

The lobster and crab had been caught that afternoon - you can't get any fresher than that! DH had the lobster tails, which he said were the most tender lobster he's ever had, and I had the coconut curry snapper which was sooooo tasty. The crab claws were different than the type of crab we're used to in Canada, and came all pre-cracked, but they were difficult to eat without getting a bite of shell. The creole broth they were served in was fantastic though. Fantastic fresh seafood for a fantastic price!

“AWESOME Creole!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2011

We loved this place! We actually should have tried this place for dinner. We met the owner as he was our waiter. He showed us hsi fresh lobster catch of the day and asked us if there was anything we wanted that he could make up for us....whatever we could think of! It was great!!

We only ate here for breakfast, but it was GREAT!!! Lobster burrito and a shrimp burrito.
