“good food but pricey”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

The food was good with large portions but the prices were higher than I expected. Interesting decor with wait staff dancing and singing.

“It's ok for a group...”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

Nothing outstanding here.. Standard franchise seafood place.. Loud at times... Food quality is ordinary.. But it is ok if you are going with a group.

“It's good”
Reviewed August 11, 2012

It is very good but the amount of food they give you is not correct for the price.

“A pleasent surprise”
Reviewed August 8, 2012

The friendly atmosphere and the delicious food although I usually tip 20 % I felt the server was worth more. While we were there all the servers gathered around a nearby table and gave their rendition of happy birthday to another guest.

“Seafood”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

The seafood variety and taste are wonderful. The staff is great and the wait is reasonable. A bit pricey but overall good.
