Steamed crab legs didn’t seem fresh, maybe cooked and leftover? Not sure just know that I expected fresher seafood. Wasn’t offered a refill on my drink. Others in my group enjoyed their food but I wouldn’t return.

We sat out on the upper deck. Great view of the sunset and music/band from place below. Order a half dozen oysters, fresh and yummy. Ordered the crab legs with shrimp, yummy. Couple beers. Good night. Prices reasonable.

We were rushed, rushed, rushed - and the restaurant wasn't even crowded. The waiter wanted us to order right after we got the menu. Later - he tried to take our plates while we were still eating! We had received a $100 gift certificate and...More
