My wife and I and another couple ate there in March 2017 and we all enjoyed our selections from salmon to baked fish to the hushpuppies and sides. Everything was very tasty and the service was swift and attentive.

no, it's a nice place but not your upscale fine dining. it's true to what I call fish camp instead of sea food restaurant.
