Boiled peanuts and chilled shrimp were great. Fish of the day was very fresh tasting and not too expensive. Nice family restaurant and will definitely come back next time...The inside was fun and had some south charm

There is always a wait to dine here. But, fortunately it goes by quickly. There is a cool bar to wait, and fun inspirational cards to entertain everyone in your party!
