We usually eat in the bar but you can opt to dine alongside the shark tank. The food, service and beer selection is always excellent. Live music on weekends.

We got the Groupon and saved $11. Lots of types of barbecues. Smoked sausage was good, sides were good, ribs were GREAT. I liked my brisket tips well enough. The aquarium was perfect for my little kids.

Do you allow dogs inside or on the outdoor patio. ? I have a little 6 lb. Yorkie companion dog (he has his credentials). He is very well behaved and I carry him in a kangaroo type pouch. We want to come Sunday afternoon.

They have the patio next to the bar and outdoor flamingo area that can probably allow dogs. You should call them to make sure..
