Unexpectedly good dinner. The menu had a large offering and the prices were reasonable. Our server DeeDee was a pleasure.

Jasmine was amazing! She was very friendly and funny. Make sure you let her know.

Please figure out a way to get crab crackers or allow one per table. It was hard eating the crab without them.

I loved my raw oysters for the starter. I also loved my snow crab legs for the entree! The service was good and the red wine tasty! I look forward to my next visit!

the menu consists mainly of fried fish. If that's what you're looking for, this place is good value.

The food is very good. The seasoning was wonderful. However, we waited for 15minutes from the time we were seated until one of the waitresses came to get our drink orders. Apparently she worked in another section but waited on us since none of the other wait staff in our section did. The food was good, however I don’t know if I’ll be back again.

I HAD MY BIRTHDAY DINNER HERE THE PAST WEEKEND AND I AM HONESTLY VERY HAPPY. FELT BAD FOR THEIR BARTENDERS. FOR THE SIZE OF THE PLACE AND BAR THEY COULD OF HAD 2 MORE PEOPLE BACK THERE. SOMETIMES WE WAITED 20-30 MINUTES FOR DRINKS TO COME. FOOD WAS FAST HOT AND DELISH! YAA WAS OUR SERVER-* 5 STARS FOR HER AND DEALING WITH OUR GROUP!

Good location. The restaurant has good food. Our server was inexperienced with some mistakes. Ordered red wine and she brought us white wine.

We had open door reservations for 5, but their dinner staff hadn’t arrived yet. To their credit they told us 15 minutes and it was 12. We were seated and served in reasonable amounts of time. The food was fantastic and the hand wipes very helpful. Not a 5 star dining experience but totally worth going again.

The service is a tad spotty-seems like they were training new ppl. They switched our table -TWICE (once b/c it was some servers “turn” to have a table. They need to organize that better) and it took FOREVER for our waitress to come. She was apologetic and was very nice.
It seems like they had ALOT of folks on the schedule who weren’t really working as they were just walking around.
Spacious restaurant, clean bathrooms, great food! I’d definitely go back and encourage everyone in a seafood mood to give it a go!
