If you are for quantity over quality this is the place. Mediocre food, bad service and a whole lot to take home. I won't be visiting them again thank you.

Just opened about a month ago. HUGE menu...seafood but so much more. It has a large bar area, plus a separate dining room. The atmosphere is nice, service kinks are being worked out, and the food is fantastic. The crab cakes give most a run for their money in this area of crab cake experts.
