Stopped by on a weekday - were seated immediately. Wait staff at our table as soon as we sat down. Brought water and rinks almost before we had a chance to think about it. We all ordered seafood and portions were gigantic.

Great place in a comfortable setting. All we ate was the crablegs, which were cooked perfect and very clean and good color. Staff is very friendly and attentive. Love this place
