Our family ate here in early June. Food was great, as was the service. Inside could use some work, but we came for the seafood not the decor. Would go back again if in the area.

Who knew when we stopped here the food would be SO GOOD and the staff and owners so welcoming. Fresh fish, cooked right - we went back 2 days in a row. Don't miss this little treasure.
