We had a nice cocktail from the bar and took our wait and visited with one another. Our appetizers were great and our entrees tasted very good. Our service was great. We love mermaids and liked seeing all the mermaids for decoration.

We had the Cajun Pasta and the Surf and Turf special. Both were very good. They also serve bread which was good. The server was excellent and made the meal more special.

This is my all time favorite restaurant. I always order something different each time I visit and I’m never disappointed. Not only is the food delicious, but you can get a great chocolate martini as well. Highly recommend.
