Excellent food. Reasonable prices and large portions. Seafood pasta was incredible. Giant scallops, shrimp,calamari and mussels in a butter sauce. Fish tacos are huge and spicy. Very nice salads too and a great drink menu. Service was fast and friendly.Would definitely eat here again.

The food here is great. My husband and I love the swordfish and scallops they've added to the menu! They recognize their regular customers making you want to return. The service is excellent. Nice atmosphere too. Casual, fun, fine food.
