This is out favorite place for fresh seafood. It gets very crowded so go early or make a reservation. It’s a BYOB, so bring what you like to drink.

Even though we are locals, this was our first visit after given a recommendation from friends. We got here right before it got extremely busy. Appetizers and food were served promptly. Our server was very friendly. We brought a bottle of wine.
