Went here on one of the two nights that they have unlimited shrimp. Was well prepared, lightly breaded and hot. Future servings were timely and hot. It was a good expirrence and we will go back .

We thankfully called ahead to pick up our orders of shrimp. The place was uncomfortably packed so eating in would not have been enjoyable. The fried shrimp was decent, steamed shrimp was good and the grilled shrimp was excellent.
