Really great seafood. Outstanding service. We were impressed by the willingness to have the fish prepared anyway you like it, whether on the menu or not. Obviously a "real" kitchen. Reasonable wine pricing.

Good food and service, especially at the bar. But, I was a little disappointed that it didn't have a very wide range of fresh seafood dishes. This reminded me more of an inland seafood restaurant than one on the coast. What they offered was very...More

The place is so dark, but the attention over there was great, excellent service and also goodwill style. I suggest the almond crusted salmon which is a plenty meal.
