Great seafood joint in the area and nice ambiance. We ordered grilled calamri, crab martini, Mahi Mahi & Tuna. Could not go wrong with the recommendations. Our server Natalie T was excellent.

This restaurant is conveniently close to Westminster Choir College, which we were visiting. My daughter and I split the lime jalapeño shrimp appetizer and the Atlantic salmon entree. Both were exquisite. The menu had a wonderful variety of seafood offerings, and this place would be...More
