This is my wife's favorite place for times when she has a craving for shrimp. I don't eat shell fish so I usually eat the fish and chips with their Cajun fries. Food never disappoints but the waiting time can be ridiculously long. The longest...More

A really great dinner. Different. Your shellfish selection comes seasoned in a bag. The wings are also very good.

The mecca of seafood. It was soooo good that we went to the joint's LA location a week later. Don't forget to order some sweet potato fries, they are heavenly. Corn is also a must-have side order.
