If you're looking for GOOD seafood this is the place to go. Everything we ate was excellent. I also loved the jukebox inside the restaurant.

Nice restaurant with excellent food and very generous portions. Be prepared when you visit this place to receive one check, they do not give guest individual checks if you are with a group.

I can't believe the food I saw on the plates. This place not only has reasonable prices but they actually give you a lot of food! The owner came to my table multiple times to check in and it was really nice. My server was very attentive and the vibe was great. It is truly an all-hands on deck sort... More
