I didn't care for my meal to much. Seafood pasta, their go to dish and the waiter says she loved it and recommends to everyone. Yeah you might not want to do that anymore. GF liked the steamed crab legs, they were good. Mixed drinks were weak and not cheap. Don't mind paying for a drink but give me a... More

Wife had grouper, I had the ya-ya. Too much food, mine was filled with shrimp, sausage and a lot of rice. Flavor was good, maybe a little too harsh roux, but if you like that sort of thing you will like it. My wife's food was excellent.

Absolutely delicious! Great food and Great Service! There was a wait when we arrived, but after a few minutes we were able to get a seat at the bar. Best choice - Amanda (I think that's her name) was the bartender. She was very personable and made a fantastic margarita without using pre-mix - delish! We started with the roasted... More
