Nice spot with a bar. Booths line a long wall. Good for “social distancing. Started with the coconut shrimp with orange rum sauce. Good, but the sauce could have a bit more horseradish kick. We really liked the coleslaw offered as a side dish to the main entree, crab cakes. The cakes were great. We also had the Crab Imperial. Get that. It’s good with the green beans (with toasted almonds). We’ll be back.

Excellent fresh seafood! This was my second trip and it was the same great quality of service and food. The blackened catfish was as good as you can get. The seasoning is fantastic, will be back. Lots to explore on the menu.
