Went here on a Friday night and it was surprisingly uncrowded. There were only about 5 tables of patrons. The location is nice, although the potential for a scenic water view is ruined by shrubbery across the street. For the appetizer, we had fried shrimp-...More

I had a late lunch today. Ordered the special, blackened sea bass BLT with black beans and rice. It was excellent! To top it off, I had warm bread pudding. My server was friendly and kept me company which I appreciated as a solo diner.
