Visit few weeks ago with large party (12) and we had excellent service. The food was great, our server was attentive and we couldn't have asked for a better meal.

Excellent service and great food. Downstairs is very casual, upstairs is very nice. The food was good and the pricing was what you would expect. Would definitely go back.

I don't like deep fried seafood, so why did I order the fisherman's platter? What was I thinking? Way too much bland, greasy batter overpowered the oysters, fish and shrimp. Will I remember next time? Hope so.

This person continues to harrass our social media outlets every week because of a fight they got into with another patron. We have no control of guests' personal squabbles and would appreciate not having to host complaints which we had no part in creating.

Yes, this location accepts reservations. I consider the dress code to be a sporty or nice casual in upstairs dining room. Not too dressy but better than just beach attire. If you want to dress up a bit this is a beautiful... More
