Wonderful food and our server who was new was great! I think her name was Haley. Only problem was a large group behind us with children that were running around, knocking over trays and other things. Management noticed and offered to move our table over in the room. It was a little aggravating and our bill should have been compensated in some way. We will come back as we know it was a fluke that the noise and frustrating of kids is not normal.

Food was excellent. Portions for the Bender fries need to be significantly more- three bites are not sufficient

Definitely the place to go for seafood in the area. A wide selection and they really know how to prepare it properly. We ordered halibut, tuna, and grouper ant they were all cooked perfectly. They also offer a wide variety of preparations. Our server was very helpful and they had one of the best wine lists that I have ever seen at a wide variety of prices.

Great dinner, as always, however one table of a boys-night-out large group really ruined the normal wonderful ambiance this great place. Many times I could not even hear my dinner guest's voice in normal conversation volume. If I want to be around groups doing cheers and shots I could pick a number of sports bars. Disappointing that they weren't placed in a private room so as to allow the rest of the guests to enjoy their evening.
