The food was great and we sat outside where they had a play area for the kids and so we were able to talk to my husbands boss and let our kids play! The service was not great but our server was new and we...More

Look for whatever may be the special of the day. Ask your server what is really good that day. Don't go in craving one specific thing. Trust your server. That's what I always do.

Food was great and the cost was reasonable. I like what they had our Birthday Boy do acting like a seagull flapping around the restaurant.

If you love seafood, you will not be disappointed here. I ordered the lobster combo and I ate the whole meal. I did not expect to do so but it was so good. The seasoning was greaat and cooked to perfection.

I love seafood...and this place should really review its menu and the way of cooking. Nothing to say about the location and the service but the food...too oily, so greasy that you can't tast the seafood... a big no no...

We sat outdoors and my daughter played most of the evening on the playground. We enjoyed the happy hour. $3 drafts and margaritas and $5 appetizers. The rest of the food was average - nothing great and pretty pricey. The main dinner for my husband,...More
