This place gets very crowded on the weekends. You'd think it was excellent food. It is not bad seafood but I would not give it 5 stars. It is a local joint which I think local people have traditionally come to and continue to do so. Service was so so, but I think that was due to the big crowd.

This restaurant has been around for a long time and has a good reputation (we've been there various times over the years), but this visit was quite disappointing. One of us ordered the mahi mahi and the other ordered a steak and coconut shrimp combo. I have to say that what we enjoyed most was the baked potatoes! The mahi... More

Have eaten there several times and was satisfied but last weekend a bit disappointed. Service was slow and food was pricey for the portion size. My wife never received the soup she ordered. Drive about 30 miles each way to dine there, but will really have to think about it in the future.

My wife, her friend, and I are here Sunday the 19th for the all you can eat crab leg night. My wife and her friend both got the crab legs and really enjoyed them! The meal also comes with a salad, cup of soup, and fried chicken breasts. They both received great service from our waitress Kelly who was very... More

This is the place to relax, chit chat, sip some favorite drinks, make sure you go on a day that offers cream of crab soup. Atmosphere and décor mimmick a fisherman's village including an aquarium. Don't feel like fishy food, then try the sizzling steak. You can't go wrong.

I have only visited this restaurant once, and after our experience I swore that I would never go back. We happened to be there during a "bike Night" where other patrons who drink got all the service and since I don't, and can't, drink beer, we were actually told by our waitress that she didn't have time for us. We... More

The Steak Salad is fantastic. Get the Mango Vinegarette with it you'll be surprise of the flavor. Dennis our waiter is so nice and courteous. Prices are decent also.

Considering I did not order seafood in a seafood restaurant I am aware that my review is not based on their specials. The place is neat and the staff is great. However I found my chopped steak to be lacking and the gravy or the fries leaving an aftertaste. My wife enjoyed her shrimp salad sandwich. It would be better... More
