This restaurant is a favorite of mine, they serve fresh seafood. Their Grilled fish sandwiches are delicious, and their coleslaw is great too. The service is friendly and fast. I usually bring visiting company there, and they leave happy and full.

Have not been for a while and thought we'd try it again. It has always been good in the past. We were not disappointed. The food was still excellent and the service was very good as well.
