Nothing too bad to say, nothing good either. The food was very so-so, as was the menu and service. I will probably never go back.

I can't believe how long it takes for you to get your meal!!! They cook one thing a a time, never bring drinks to your table and make you feel like you're putting them out by asking. On the up side the food is fantastic!!...More

Attempted to eat breakfast here but after waiting an hour we asked if they had started our meal, which they had not, so we decided to leave. Offered to pay for our coffee and the waitress replied with " just get out of here!"

Friends took me there for dinner. It is a very busy restaurant, especially with the locals. Great location near the ferry landing, They have a lot of choices on the menu. We had fried fish with a Caesar salad and it was very good.
