This place has very good seafood, atmosphere & staff. Waiter was very attentive. I had the shrimp & grits while the wife had fish tacos. Both cooked to perfection.

Greeted quickly at door, did not have to wait long, great service from the wait staff and nice follow up from the manager. All in all a really nice experience and the food was really good! Served hot and not a long ticket time for a party of 8. I will be going back again in the future.
