Their brisket is amazing. The Chipotle salsa was tasty albeit not spicy. Crab and avocado salad was delicious. Their beer prices are darned high. Other than that a very good meal.

We went for tacos and we enjoyed them. I had the blackened fish along with the steak! They both were delicious! My husband also had pork and brisket tacos! He enjoyed those too!

We were there on a slow weekday night, so service was not an issue; they were glad to see us. The catch of the day was scallops served over crab/risotto. Beyond awesome. Simply one of the best seafood meals I have ever had.
