The restaurant offers delicious seafood and steak. Plus the most amazing stone crab claws in the area. The service is prompt, welcoming and efficient. Our family has been coming here for years and it continues to one of our favorite restaurants.

Stopped here first thing off the plane in Miami because of reviews. Sadly, not that impressed. I guess we were expecting something really awesome but ended up with....just a 'whatever' kind of experience. Not impressed other than the expensive bill at the end.

I would think so. Plan on long wait times. You can go to the takeout /lunch part which is easier to get into.
