Fresh seafood with multiple was to enjoy it. I had the crab cake patty melt - mouth watering good. We also had the fried shrimp - tasted like it came right out of the ocean. The service was extremely helpful and polite.

We stopped by for drinks during a charity event. Service was good despite crowds. Second floor seating gives great breezes and views of Shem Creek.
