Went for dinner for the seafood banquet and the service was exceptional. The Bugs were very small but that was the only thing I could fault. I do think though that people are charged for the name. By Restaurant Ramblings.More

We had breakfast and lunch here. The food lacks taste and is of a poor quality. The cost is overpriced and the staff seem disinterested and lack proper training.
