All 3 of us enjoyed everything we ordered, but especially the fresh crab meat. If you don't want to deal with shells, no problem! You can have it served in a ramikin! Friendly service and ok atmosphere. Prices are good for what you are getting!

Had tuna app, lots of oysters. Grilled grouper and garlic shrimp dishes were excellent. Fried grouper was average. Batter needs more seasoning. Desserts really good. Too pricey

The menu on line is NOT the menu at the restaurant. My sister ordered a medium rare stake and got a medium. The waitress took it back and another woman brought the same stake back and questioned her. Rather than argue my sister accepted the...More
