I generally go here just to purchase fresh fish. Finally decided to eat-in. It was mildly hectic, but service was great. Food is fantastic. Parking....sucks, as does trying to get out of the parking lot. But that's always been an issue, whether you eat there...More

Great place for a quick bite. Food came out fresh and hot with large portions. Floors need to be swept more often and tables need to be wiped more consistently.
