Located in a strip shopping center and was a great surprise. Really good food with great service at very reasonable prices. What more can you ask for. I had the shrimp special (30 shrimp) and it was first class.

The Misses said lets give it a try. I give them a average rating simply because the food was hot. The coleslaw was tasteless and my complete was swimming in butter. The misses had the flounder and she couldn't finish it. The acceptance of this...More

The food here never disappoints. We had 2 lobster tails with shrimp. It was great and the prices are reasonable.
