Kathy this is Dj again. Also the food is not good for what you will pay. And confirm the day that they are closed. Monday or Tuesday. I hope you have a better time then we did. Dj

I have no idea. Suggest you call Moby Dicks (361-749-9447) and leave a message for him. He's in the restaurant almost every day.
