Overpriced and food quality is below poor. Service was terrible and the place did not smell good... Drinks were watery and beer not cold.

FINALLY!! This place has finally closed their doors. A restaurant that never made it to the 21st century. Decor has never been updated and the food is in the same condition.

We had mixed results for an evening meal here. My dining companion was extremely satisfied with his fish entree, but my scallop dish was under-cooked. I will try it again to see if the quality is more consistent. The decor is old seafood shack style,and...More
