Looking for a good seafood restaurant, we came here. At first we were confused by the big rooster outside and the mechanic uniforms on the waiters. The building looks big on the outside, but 3/4 of the seats are outside. No more than 70 people...More

Headed home from Disney & decided we wanted to actually eat some good food before we got home. Not only did this cost less than any overpriced snack at Disney, but this was by far the best food we had since before we left home!...More

Overpriced and mediocre food and service. Not quite sure why this restaurant is so popular locally as there are better options around.
