Great meal in a casual setting. Has both indoor and outdoor seating available. Lobster ravioli and bruschetta appetizers were light and tasty. BBQ shrimp dish, Voodoo chicken and Macadamia crusted mahi mahi were fresh and delightful. Wait staff was very attentive.

We had a delightful experience for our Friday night date night... Seafood was really fresh, service was attentive, atmosphere was very casual, relaxed, and friendly. We ate on the outside porch which was a really charming setting. Corn and crab chowder is a must have.
