Very laid back place. Very old and not all that pleasing to the eye. It really could use an overhaul. The food was mediocre at best. The fish was not completely dried out but the well done burger was pretty much burnt to a crisp...More

Food was decent but lack of service for the 'automatic' 20% tip! Waitress was non-existent other than serving one round of drinks, food and no water! What's the incentive?! Don't appreciate being told how to tip with non-earned service.
