Wow this was absolutely delicious, prices very reasonable, and a great waitress in pink. Near to the outlet mall, the oyster bar was cozy. I really enjoyed my meal, crispy enchiladas with blackened Mahi Mahi. Plain fish and chips were also to be recommended.

Not a five star but, excellent food and knowledgeable wait staff but very noisy and crowded. Great for the owners. Not so great for the patrons. Still, it is a great place to eat. Will obviously go back.

I love King crab. Many places will cut it along the length of the leg to make it easier to get to the meat. I have not had it here so I would suggest calling and asking. If not then you are in for a work out as king crab... More
