Not much on atmosphere, but the food is plentiful and pretty good. Had the oyster special and these were huge and lightly breaded and fried. Prices are fair considering what you get. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

Madam, I accept criticism when warranted and welcome suggestions however I don't accept misleading comments like yours. After conferring with your server it was decided to respond with shame on you!!!
