Stopped by Wednesday night for dinner. We had the surf and turf and the steamer pot. Lots of good seafood. If your looking for a deal this place probably isn't for you.If you like good seafood in a casual atmosphere than try it.

Stopped by in early May, so still off-season, around 8pm. Anything steamed was not available, they close their steamers first (off season thing?), we were told. Dan was hoping for crabs but he had the fish tacos instead. It was nice to be able to...More
