Loved the Cole slaw with mini shrimp tucked in! Mahi avacado... More

Had a great lunch, beautiful atmosphere on the bay. Great wait staff and awesome food. I've been a couple of times and will definitely keep coming back. I had fried shrimp lunch plate and it was enough for dinner.

The weather was perfect for enjoying the out door seating on Sunday. I think we worked our way through most of the appetizers on the menu and then moved onto the "Crab Clusters". The service was top notch and we can't wait for our return visit.
