We went to Thursday night AYCE shrimp and we were not disappointed. The shrimp are cooked to order and are fresh, hot and yummy! The special includes French fries, coleslaw and tea. The service was wonderful. We had a relaxing evening. We’ll be back soon!

Stopped by for a light lunch and spent $30 for one person. Pricey for a fish sandwich and a cup of bisque.
