My husband and I had an amazing dinner here! The king crab pie and seafood soup really hit the spot. The atmosphere was very cozy and the service was excellent. I would highly recommend.

Skip the expensive tourist traps. This is a neighborhood joint that serves fresh food simply. Excellent service, terrific seafood. You'd think you were in a funky little place in Austin, Texas.
