Tiny, unassuming restaurant with incredibly and delicious seafood, cooked to order. You can get it anyway you like it. Our server was excellent, attentive but did not hover. Everyone in my group agreed that this was one of the best seafood restaurants ever.

Yes, it is a small local facility at end of a strip center. It is not fancy and very reasonably priced. The staff is very friendly and helpful.
