The BEST shrimp I've ever had! It was our first time eating there, but it will not be our last. The atmosphere was relaxing and the staff was efficient and friendly.

We ordered our food and the waitress brought it out to us about 5 minutes later. Pulled poor was good. I liked the BBQ sauce. My husband had the burnt ends and they were excellent. Prices are very reasonable.
