Three couples all different entrees....everybody satisfied. If you are into Crab cakes or fish and chips both are great. The stand out was fish and chips. Not the usual pieces of fish. Two big filets fried perfectly....give it a try.

The food was not good and was also over priced. I don't suggest going here. Service was okay but not the best. We also called and they told us they don't give out wait times over the phone.
