Excellent down home atmosphere. The locals eat there and I can't blame them. Large price range on items but nothing unrealistic. Everything is quality and the seafood is very fresh.

Parking is difficult for this restaurant. Not a nice part of town to have to walk several blocks after dinner. The food was good but not as special as the price would indicate. Wine was expensive for house wine. It does have a nice ambiance...More

The ambiance is a delightful, yet classy ocean theme. The menu is upscale and diverse surf & turf dishes. Our food was amazing, but the crowning jewel was the Hot Chocolate Truffle Cake... Absolutely decadent!

Really difficult to find place to park near, best after 6 pm, free then. Place was nice, food was good, service was good, one of the pricier places to eat.

Can you make accommodations for vegan guests? Can side items be ordered a la carte? If a dinner entree was ordered without the fish/meat, would you still charge full price?
