Nicely prepared fish dishes and good service. Environment is lively and gets pretty loud when the restaurant is full. Nice upstairs eating area if you want an area that is slightly quieter.

I go for the great food, not for a happy hour that you can get in any bar. I will say if your going for drinks and appetizers, you can't go wrong.
