We ate here on a Friday night in March. The meal was fantastic from start to finish, as was the service. I really like the marine-themed decor and the cozy atmosphere. All four of our party raved about the experience.

My friend and I had a fabulous seafood meal here. The oysters were some of the freshest I ever tasted and the fish, which had been caught that day was cooked delicately. The owner/waiter was knowledgeable about his ingredients and wine. Highly recommended.
