We had a really wonderful meal here last weekend. The service was so friendly and the food was great. The fish tacos were especially tasty, as were the oysters. Would highly recommend for a romantic dinner.

Expectations were not high for dinner here but it had the advantage of being very close as we were renting a house in the neighborhood. We were pleasantly surprised by the experience. The restaurant was sparsely populated but, in general, the food was good. I...More
