Great place. Have been here several times. All our dinners were great. Coconut Shrimp, Fish & shrimp, Blackened Tuna. Also had the pina colada in the pineapple! Loved it. Their gift shop also has a nice selection. Parking can be quite the challenge.

I have no idea. Suggest you call Moby Dicks (361-749-9447) and leave a message for him. He's in the restaurant almost every day.
