We were especially happy to have Lily serve us, with helpful drink and dinner suggestions. The seafood is very fresh, and many creative choices. The Seafood Cobb salad (main course dinner) is outstanding.

Enjoyed my 4 pm seafood dinner but still was looking for that WOW. Fish selections was no biggie, not sure why this is a maneuver to get into. You have a ways to go to be as amazingly fresh and satisfying as Owens.

Wonderful about seating us without everyone being there. Very friendly and knowledgeable wait staff. No problem with separate checks which is nice when not everyone drinks. Atmosphere is quite pleasant and the seating areas are such that you don't feel crammed in.
