Family of 7 had lunch on a Thursday. Service was good and fast. Kids meals were on the small side. Crab cake sandwich was delicious. Mixed drinks were very weak but tasty.

Very good and nice wait staff. We were a party of nine and the waitress did a good job. Everyone enjoyed their food. There is a long wait if you are not in line when they open the doors. Would definitely go again.

When I visit I usually choose the Ahi Tuna Steak- rare or medium rare--- I love the seasoning they have on it. This time the Tuna was way over-cooked. I called it to the attention of my server & he took it back. Returning in...More
