Pretty good for shrimp plates. Atmosphere was a bit loud, but lively. The wait was a bit long, but well worth the wait. There is an adult lounge downstairs that has a full bar, music and sometimes comedy.

King crab legs were old, fishy, extremely salty... What a waste of time and money. Calamari were fishy as well, salad was drenched in dressing which made it unbearable! I would avoid this at all cost!
