All you can eat shrimp for $15 and the shrimp was amazing! The portions were generous and delicious! They really know how to cook some fantastic food! The most amazing sunset as well! We will absolutely be back soon!

Our family enjoyed the restaurant in the 70 and 80's and then a few years ago we enjoyed it more. But now... There is a damp musty smell in the restaurant. No flounder on the menu only whiting fish. What is that about?? No soups...More
