Not breaded and deep fried, but sauteed with garlic, onions and banana peppers. I would go back just for the calamari. They have specials most days, and karaoke on Thursday nights. Menu items seemed a bit pricey, so we just had a couple of beers and an appetizer during their happy hour(s) which starts at 1 pm.

Before I comment on the Broadway show, let me say that we at lunch there and it was fine. Typical Caribbean eatery, with great views. While we ate lunch the owner asked if we would like to make dinner reservations the next night for their Thursday night Broadway play (It was Chicago that night). Never once did he say it would be a very limited menu (4 choices) and way overpriced. The food was below average as well. We thought it was still OK because we were still getting a free show. The musical Chicago was performed by 4 people and was lip synced. The musical was condensed to 4 songs and 30 minutes long. I would recommend another activity then their Broadway night.

On monday we had lunch and a man approached us soliciting their wed "special" lobster dinner 1 1/2 lb for $30.00 and wanted to get people to sign up. We made a reservation. We had the dinner as expected but the charge was now $35. When asked about the change they just said the man at lunch quoted the wrong price. But that was what we were solicited. We were very dissapointed with how toppers misleads customers. We had 4 at our table so they just jacked up their take $20.00.
Don't support busineses that treat customers this way.
Very dissapointed.
