We had a party of seven from ages 1 to 40, everything we ordered was great, royal reds, Dave's shrimp, linguine, cheeseburger. The waitress G was spot on and was probably the best service we got wile in PCB. Can't wait to go back

Good food, good portion sizes, great server. Went after working hard all day outside, so we were fairly dehydrated. The guy never let our drinks run out. Great food. We will be back

Not your normal tourist trap...I have had both the fish and shrimp baskets and found both to be very well prepared and tasty. Service was very good...it is well worth the visit.
