Used to enjoy the food and service but last three visits were a disappointment. Mixed and delayed orders and a waitress that could care less about our waiting time and uncooked fish.

ate at old location and it was pretty good. this time, not so much. all you can eat shrimp (both boiled and fried) were tough and fishy. the filling of the fish tacos was pretty good but the tacos themselves were hard (these were soft tacos). overall disappointing .

I ordered the Crabby Patty (thinking that it would be good since it's the signature sandwich).. It was TERRIBLE. I could... More

Everything is just OK here. Service, food, etc. I have been here several times since I moved here and no complaints but nothing outstanding here.
