Food was delicious and atmosphere is pleasant. I would definitely come again. My husband and I had the shrimp quesadillas, my mom had the oyster sliders. We're very satisfied.

Stop in here to have a few drinks and food. My wife order a pina colad which was more of a drink than frozen, not worth the price $10. The live music was nice, nice decor and friendly staff. Food was ok.

In for an early dinner, shaded from the late afternoon heat, we waited on our order of a caprese salad and blue crab stuffed flounder. The brick walls and stained wood floors are a perfect foil for the restored tin ceilings. Sunlight through the orange...More
