The calamari was some of the most tender I have ever had. The daily catch was very flavorful. Dessert was great as well. Friendly staff, highly recommended.

I don't know the answer to that question. I do know that the food is amazing, and we have eaten in some of the best restaurants in Charleston, Savannah, Richmond and Portland, Maine.
