Perfect seafood. The lobster and linguine picatta was AMAZING! Get there for the happy hour specials, Margarita (Tamarind, Pom) was one of the best Margarita's I have ever had and for only$6.

We didn't really enjoy our meal here. The only thing that tasted good was the shrimp scampi. The rest was just average and all of it was definitely overpriced. I wouldn't come back here. There are better valued places in the area.More

Thank you for the great review! I do apologize for the oyster being shucked incorrectly. We will be addressing this further with the kitchen staff to ensure they are properly shucking the oysters.

The place is nice and the service attentive. The garlic shrimp with pepper flakes and garlic were very good, even excellent. Prices were very, very reasonable. The oysters were awful. They were warm and sloppy and I think someone opened them with a chainsaw. There...More
