The fish entrees were very good. The specials were very tasty with the crab meat on top. The prices were at the top of restaurants in the area and maybe not up to the scale of like establishments. The atmosphere and music were excellent.

This is a class resturant. I wouldn't go there in jeans and a pull-over. A sports coat and nice shirt is best. I usually go with a coat and tie.
