The food was good. The wait staff was efficient. It can be crowded so go early during the season. I would go again and recommend to anyone.

Everything about our meal was exceptional, from the wine to the key lime pie. But most of all our server Chris. Husband had the flounder special and it was perfect, and I had the mahi mahi.
