The waiters were super friendly at this location and the food was excellent. If you were looking for royal red shrimp this is your place. Excellent catch of the day menu option and much more! The food was one of my favorite on our vacation.

This is a really good place to get your sea food fix! I recommend sitting outside the inside is quite dark. The price is just a tad high for our liking which is the only reason I'm not giving them a 5. We got the...More

If you LOVE fresh seafood and want to leave the fried food behind, this is the place. Tried several places here and this was by far the best! You won't be disappointed.
