One word. DELICIOUS! The young waitress was running off her feet but servered everyone with a smile. Deceiving from the outside, this is a great stop to have a meal.

This restaurant is top of the list in Salmon. I had their prime rib special that was cooked perfectly. The wait staff was courteous and attentive. My wife had the Jumbo shrimp cooked with coconut that was also great. Highly recommended.
