I just finished a wonderful meal of garlic shrimp. It was so good and generous portions. The waitress was extremely nice and polite. I’ll definitely be back.

Scallops, crabcake and hushpuppies were great. Mahi was average. Pesto pasta was terrible. Collards were very bitter. Guess this balances out to average. Service was very good.
