In fact, anywhere else is better! Take it from a local! Most locals will not eat here! Rude management, slow & indifferent staff probably comes from the top down. The place is unsanitary at least, food is the worst!

Ate here while in town based on reviews. When we arrived, we were immediately seated. Our server informed us that they were understaffed (server wise) that night. The food was okay at best. The calamari was over cooked. I ordered grooper, but I got white...More

Absolutely good for conversations. The tables are nicely spaced and while there is music, and maybe even some television playing in one area, my friend and I had no issues with noise levels or being able to hear one another.
