Would have liked to have finished my $6.50 sparkling water before the waiter replaced it without asking… Seafood was excellent. Like seriously good. I’ll be back for the seafood despite the fact I didn’t enjoy my last stay. Definitely will be looking for an outdoor table on a warm night.

Open kitchen and kitchen chatter heard, but reminded me a little of the midnight dinner series.... definitely recommend and we'll be back.
