Very enjoyable evening with family. The food was very good; the service and ambiance was outstanding. A little pricey, but worth the price.

The food was wonderful. I had a seared yellow fin tuna special, my husband had a fried seafood platter--both good choices! Server was a tad on the ditzy side, but still okay. Love the decor and location.
