Crab legs were amazing! Yes, they were expensive, but they were worth every penny. The service was fantastic, too!

Service was slow. Took a while to et our drink orders in, then a while to get food order in and a while to get food. Lobster mac n cheese was good. Chicken wasn't very good. Most of items were over priced.
