Not open on weekends....Food was good not great. The prior time I felt is was better. It would not be my first choice but just had to go for old times sake. So many more places to choose from in Hopetown now.

We ate here two nights in a row. The fried shrimp were delicious and my husband ordered the fish tacos on Taco Tuesday and loved them (a bargain!). On the appetizer menu they have homemade potato chips which are wonderful. We even got an extra...More
