Somehow the name rang of "Joe's Crab Shack", but that wouldn't describe this place at all. Its upscale & our server was excellent. We would go back here in a heartbeat!

We had a wonderful dinner and every dish ordered was superb. The appetizers (perfectly fried calamari and awesome crab cakes), entrees (bone-in NY strip, salmon, grouper and snapper), desserts (one of each)...all delicious. Literally every dish was perfect. Good wine list...fun cocktail special.
