We visited this location a short while ago and had a great time. the wait staff were awesome. The food was delicious but it took about one and a half hours to get our food. We also found this place to be reasonably priced.

Called in and ordered shark wings and cajun fries for take-out. Went to pick them up and the place was cleary busy with people waiting outside to go in. This large old man bouncer (who seemed half drunk) was at the front of the door....More
