We enjoyed our first meal so much we went back again! Scallops, swordfish, salmon all fresh and delicious! Mashed potatoes yummy too. Second visit had beef and seafood kabobs and onion rings - all really good. Next time trying the fish tacos.

As a local this one of my "go to" favorite spots. You can't beat the freshness of the food, although you can't be in a hurry since it takes approximately 25-30 minutes to prepare. The word is out that it's a great place for dinner!...More
