Patience is a virtue. When you arrive it may be crowded and busy, but it is worth the wait. Excellent fish fry choices and side. The service was excellent, they seat you quickly, attention to details when you order and enjoyable time.

Had reservations for 7:00 pm on Saturday night. Finally got seated at 7:30 pm. Why bother making reservations? The hostess needs training on customer service. Waitress was good, food was so so.
