The seafood is always delicious and their house salad and dressing is very unique. Dined there for birthday and ordered my first steak ever from there and it was cooked to perfection! Not a fancy place at all but the food and drinks are divine!...More

The food and services were great. We had oysters on the half shell and gumbo. I was a little thrown off of the staff dress attire being set back into slave/servant looking dress code. Even when our check was presented to us by a white...More
