We found out about this from a local. They get fresh fish and a new menu daily. They close when they run out. Great service and ambiance.

They don't take reservations, but you should have reservations about eating there!! Click on poor reviews and read carefully! So you don't upset the staff or management, and ruin your experience! Good Luck!
