We were looking for a Mexican dinner and were a little disappointed by menu selection which had a few Mexican dishes and a variety of other items.
I ordered the Nachos (an appetizer) as my dinner and they were very good and a very large portion. My wife had the 8 oz. steak special and enjoyed her meal. There was live entertainment that night but we weren't very impressed and didn't stay for more.
The strawberry margarita was very good.

Oh my goodness!! Had a craving for nachos and this place was recommended. I was not disappointed and could not get over the huge plate of SUPER goodness!! Loaded with grilled chicken and guacamole. Will definitely go back.

Really good Oysters. In fact, everything I have eaten there has been very good. Good service & fun atmosphere. Live music every time we have been there. An open mike night that was quite entertaining.

We were looking for live music on Friday night while we ate & ended up here where we had a great experience all around. The hostess was friendly and as she seated us explained the seafood buffet & all its offerings. Even though we decided to order off the menu, the buffet looked and smelled delicious.
Our server, Liz was so personable and friendly. We started with the Mexican Shrimp Cocktail and Shrimp Bisque - both winners! The cocktail came in a large margarita glass packed with shrimp and topped with slices of avocado. The bisque was a generous serving, very rich and creamy with lots of shrimp pieces. Our entrees were the grilled shrimp tacos and Shrimp Diablo. Although the tacos could have used a nice sauce, they were still tasty and a generous serving of three. The Shrimp Diablo was a modest portion but delicious nonetheless.
And the live music was the crowning touch with Micheal Laferty (who is also the owner) on guitar singing and entertaining us with his witty banter. We will definitely be back next Friday with our appetites to try out the buffet.

January 20, 2016---maybe it was "The Perfect Storm" of things going wrong but this experience sucked...apparently earlier in the day, the entire staff was involved in a freebie for winter Texans. Maybe, they thought they could sluff off after the rush. I was there to hear good music, have a couple of drinks, and eat some raw oysters. The sole bartender seemed overwhelmed. Some people near me thought she may have been drunk. I'm not sure if that is fair but it seemed like the entire staff was very lackadaisical in their attention..as though, they had made it through the mandatory rush and now were annoyed that the live music brought in more people when they thought they should have been able to slack off. Awful!
