The seafood platters are a great value. Large portions, I always end up taking food home. The staff is friendly, and the manager always stops by to check on us when we visit. A must try if you love seafood.

My husband and I love going to this restaurant. The food is always delicious and the service is very personable and friendly. They are also pretty accommodating as I do not like any seasonings on my steak and one time (and only one time) there...More
