Never had an inferior meal here the food is always top quality and service too. This restaurant has been serving good seafood for years, we went there originally on recommendation and the story goes on. Try anything on the extensive menu it will be terrific.

Feels like family! Eating shrimp here for forty years...Never disappoints. Daily specials...more than shrimp...Like eating in the kitchen(although the actual kitchen is concealed) with lots of other people. LOL Love the place.
