We ordered their Grouper fish special made with fettuccine pasta and it was just fantastic! My daughter does not like fish so they allowed her to order the child's pasta plate. Their Margarita was fantastic the service was outstanding! definitely recommended.

Quaint little restaurant. Food selection was nice, a little for every appetite (seafood, steak, burgers, desserts). Seafood was fresh, steak was fork tender, crab dip was excellent. Price was reasonable for quality of food. Loved the old time decor.
