We went here because it is highly rated, and they certainly do a great business, The atmosphere felt a bit like a “high end diner,” meaning better than your average diner but certainly not a higher end restaurant atmosphere. We started with a beer and ordered oysters and calamari as an appetizer, and both were good. For my meal I... More

This is a popular busy restaurant. The service is excellent. There were four of us and everyone was pleased with their dinners....swordfish, salmon, scallops and shrimp. The portions are normal size so dinners are reasonably priced. There was an all you can eat fish and chips special yesterday for $9.99. And each day had a different special. I would love... More

This place is always busy, but they move efficiently so your wait isn't long. Service is excellent and the generous portions of food was very good. Yep, I would recommend this to a friend, for sure. . Was impressed with the way location was managed overall. Suggest you try an appetizer.

Very popular restaurant--be prepared to wait! We had calamari for appetizer. For dinner, we decided to try "Basa" fish. Had it parmesan encrusted. This is an extremely mild, almost bland fish. Great for those that don't like fish. We do- so probably will order another fish next time. House salad was nice--had strawberries, blue cheese & nuts in it.

Service was efficient for the lunch crowd. Waitress was quick, friendly and service was top notch. 3.50 margaritas was a plus. Tour bus was just arriving as we were leaving.

We only go in the off season. The place is mobbed daily by the geezers seeking the specials. Maybe after their bedtime, 6:30 you can get in without a wait. On the positive side the menu is limited and the food comes out hot and fast. The table turn rate is phenomenal. The most popular is the fish and chips... More
