Booze in a Blender, Volcano Nachos and Peel-n-Eat Shrimp were amazing! Shared between four adults. This place is a must and you MUST get the nachos!

What a disappointment!! Service was slow. The hostess was not very helpful when seating us. She tried to squeeze us into a table that was uncomfortably close to another. We had to suggest that they clean off one of the other tables. Then the server...More
