Don't know why this place doesn't get better reviews. Never have had a bad meal here. Service is very good and you can actually carry on a conversation without shouting. Fish is very good and happy hour is amazing.

No kids menu. I think it's a fancy place. I personally wouldn't wear jeans but, I have seen others in them.
