Came in to have a late dinner with friends. We drove 100 miles from home to have a nice experience and get some crab cakes.

I don't even like shrimp, but the coconut shrimp (and apricot sauce) has me coming back all the time. Best thing on the menu. Not cheap, but worth the ticket.

This place is always fun and always busy. We had the queen crab bucket and margaritas. The food was excellent and the crab was even better. We'll be back.
