My parents who often eat at this seafood restaurant near the Dadeland Mall invited me here for my birthday and it couldn't have been a better choice! We started with some crab stuffed mushroom caps and these were delicious and just the thing to open up our appetites. I chose the Florida lobster as my main course and it tasted... More

I have been going to this restaurant for 25 years and it really has not changed much in all that time. It needs a make over probably but its still offers fresh, simple, well prepared fish that is really good and not fancy at all. The fish is always high quality and the food is always consistent. You won't go... More

Everything about this place can best be described as "ordinary." Martini was very run-of-the-mill, no blue cheese olives available. Ordered the salmon with dill sauce - was prepared with a crust, as ordered, but medium instead of well-done. How hard can this be? The baked potato was less than ordinary - small, not very hot - not enough sour cream... More

Portions are medium small, appetizers are recommended. We had the mussels and two portions are ok for six. Service is a little slow, food didn't come at the right temperature a kind of cold. They have a lot to improve.
