There for Happy Hour. Bar like atmosphere. Good cocktails and draught beers Food was reasonably priced, good portions and well prepared. No one was disappointed. Fries, ribs, tuna, burger, and grilled octopus were all good. Service was excellent. Able to sit outside.

Had a lovely meal. Service was great. Portions were huge. There are other options on the menu - not just oysters and fish.

This was a disappointing dinner. I tried the shrimp stuffed with crab. The crab was MIA from the dish. I didn't find the dinner up to par with the description and the meal was heavy and not overly tasty.

This place is average. I didn't expect a New England atmosphere, hey it's south Florida. The food was average, my Bloody Mary was average. The service a little above average. No need to hurry back, I'm sure there is better in the area.More
