“hit or miss”
Reviewed December 13, 2012

the wait staff is very young and inexperienced... you wait forever from beginning to end... and after the dinner , my debit card number was stolen and used at a later date... thank goodness my bank alerted me and shut my account down....I won't be going back there any time soon.

“Atmosphere !”
Reviewed November 5, 2012 via mobile

I just had a chance to eat here this weekend and I must say I was pleasantly surprised right from the beginning. The outside of the restaurant was well kept. Once inside you are greeted with open arms. The bar is awesome with someone that knows more than beer. If you are looking for a place to have a cocktail or a meal this is the place!

“The reason my 4 year old son will try fish.”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

I have been going here for a few years. Everything I have tried I have enjoyed. My husband likes that the fish is fresh. When my children were old enough to experiment we had them try the sweet thai cod fish (can't remember the name of it) and they loved it. Now my 4 year old son will try fish and tells everyone he loves cod. My daughter (3) is also willing to try new fish dishes she's just not as vocal about it. This is not a fancy place, and it is also a fish market so it does have a mild smell of fish and the service can be inconsistent but if a mild comment is made they usually improve. My family loves coming here.

“Tourist trap”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

This would qualify as a bottom tier tourist trap where I come from. It is benefiting from inexplicable positive reviews from people who either drink too much or want to fill their kids up because the portions are huge but the food is worse than a chain restaurant.
