I was not sure about this restaurant because I am a picky eater and their food is not ordinary. I had grilled Cajun shrimp with homemade old bay chips and coleslaw and everything was great!!! Nice staff and reasonable prices!

Based on the server's recommendation I had the Crabcakes and my husband had the fresh caught Red Snapper. The dishes were excellent, loved the fresh broccolini and roasted potato sides. The staff were friendly, knowlegeable and welcoming. I can highly recommend this lovely little restaurant.
