We have eaten here many times and have always had good service and good food. The wait staff is friendly and helpful (even with a large party that includes small children).

Our family of 7 dined here in June 2017. The atmosphere was casual and the service was great. Really enjoyed the guitarist/singer who brought a "Jimmy Buffett" mood to the place. Everyone's food was great...oysters, peel and eat shrimp, crab legs, etc. We will definitely...More
