Really good seafood. They have a small eat in area or take out. We have the calamari, shrimp dinner, crab which all were very good. Crab cakes were just ok. They also have lots of platters which are $12. Very good value!

The seafood looked good but the place, when you went in, smelled like someone (many people) had peed on the floor or there was a sewage back-up.. Not very appetizing.
