Very dissappointing. The menu stated jumbo shrimp. There were three medium shrimp with 2 small scallops over the small portion of fish. For $20.95 it was not worth it. The sauce had no flavor. I had it previously with the other owners but since the ownership has changed it is not the same.

I had coconut breaded Grouper with excellent side choices. The staff was great and fast service. It is also great for drinks. Never was in a place that had happy hour 24/7. Definitely will be back here again. Already been here 3 times this week.
