Enjoyed a very nice dinner last night! Henry provided excellent service and our meals (rice bowls) were delicious. We don't go out to dinner much these days so this was a special treat that was perfect!

The food is decent and the drinks even better! I love sitting outside under the thatched umbrellas sipping a tropical drink!

We had the meatloaf and chicken quesadillas tonight and as usual it was perfect. Savanna our waitress gave us exceptional service and kept our drinks full. The stuffed grouper and shrimps bites along with the best French fries are our favorites but there is a...lot to choose from. We will be back.More

Had a great dinner tonight. I had delicious salmon with sweet potato mash and spicy mango salsa. Hubby had creole pasta with shrimp. Shrimp cooked perfectly. Could have been a bit more spicy. Corn muffins really good! Can't wait to come back to try the...rumba saladMore

Went in to grab a bite & a cocktail and was blown away by the amazing service I had! Shannon was very attentive and kind to myself and everyone he waited on. Not only did he know most people by name but he also knew...what they were drinking and about their life. That says a lot about a bartender! I will definitely be back because of my experience!More

I was there on Monday night. Sat at the outside bar by myself. Katie took great care of me! I will definitely be back to see her! The food was very good as well. I ordered a wedge salad and the firecracker shrimp. Can't wait...to go back and see Katie again!More

We did not have reservations when we went. However, according to Yelp, they do take reservations. Note: it's a fairly large place so seating shouldn't be a problem, especially at non-peak hours.
