In a market filled with chain restaurants, this is a terrific, unique alternative. Blackened grouper was excellent and desserts were awesome. Excellent, friendly service from Orlando (yes, Orlando in Orlando!) and an entertaining live piano player for very pleasant background at just the right volume....More

Fish was overcooked on both attempts. Worse still was the manager apathy. Forced the server to make apologies. As we left I expressed my disappointment which the manager seemed uninterested. Too many other great choices around to waste money here again.
