Loyal customer for last several years, even June '17 it was excellent. September 6, '17............miniscule portions, 3 shrimp and 3 tiny oysters over-fried. Funny, the prices have stayed the same. Don't know why they changed what was one of our favorites.

They did have a lower level area that I saw from our table that had its own bar and plenty of tables to accommodate that number. Hope this helps your planning.
