The restaurant has recently been sold. The last time we ate there the food wasn't very good and the serving sizes went down as the prices went up. We finally quit going there because of the poor quality of food.

Just tried this place Labor Day weekend with some friends. The food was great. The crab encrusted tilapia was perfect and the menu had plenty of choices. We will definitely come back.

I had flounder and scallops. The scallops were perfect; they melted in my mouth. The flounder was also very good. Great seafood for a great price.
