The entire restaurant needed a good washing. The food was disgusting. The shrimp was served and it wasn't deveined. The wait staff was nice. It was gross.

Will never return here. This is a chain restaurant and the seafood tasted frozen. Living on the east coast I like fresh seafood. Service was fine and staff was friendly but the food was a disappointment.

Very nice staff! Good food as usual. Tucked right off Greenbrier Parkway across from the mall. Located next to lots of hotels!

A good choice if your not up for the gamble. A nice representation of the franchise. Manager Quinnck to make sure your satisfied. Ambience is what you might expect. Good food at a price.. drinks are so so but costly.
