After a full day on the road we decided to come to this waterfront restaurant. Famous for its fresh seafood, apparently they only serve fresh foods and nothing frozen. We had tuna sashimi, swordfish dip, and excellent pink key west shrimps. Maine courses was a...More

Typing this as our son drives us back home but wow, very very disappointing. First clue should have been when the waitress warned us that the kitchen was 30-40 minutes behind BEFORE we even ordered. But we had driven all the way there & we...More
