If you are an oyster lover, this is the one of the best. Buffalo shrimp can be the second to taste. Selection of the sommelier from the wine menu are for the ones who doesn't want to study much on.

Enjoyed a great dinner including colossal shrimp cocktail, King Crab Legs and a 6 oz Filet. The steak was cooked to perfection and flavorful. The shrimp and crab leg we perfect. Service was very good and a nice atmosphere. Spent $125 including tip.

We had a group and we all enjoyed our meals thoroughly. I had the surf and turf with crab and I was not disappointed at all. Service was excellent and the food just right and of high quality.
