I have gone to this restaurant at least once or twice a year for 25 years and I love this place. We went for our summer visit last night and the food was very under cooked. Potatoes were raw and the shrimp had no flavor...More

The good was good but what needs improvement is their ventilation sistem. No windows short ceilings makes for a very claustrophobic time. It smelled like a meat market, not appetizing at all, had to chug a few beers before I got used to the smell....More

Yes. They bring you shrimps whole, like nature made them, and they taste delicious. You can definitely taste the difference between fresh caught whole shripms and pre-decapitated, pre-shelled, pre-processed, and pre-frozen... More
