Very nice people, the food came out fast but from the salad to the soup and the main dish it was very blend. I order a stuffed grouper and it tastes like I was eating a lemon. The rice should have some corn and peas. The food was very blend..

Love it here! Great filet mignon. Love the owners and their staff. Sangria over the top. They have music on the weekends. Catering is really good. They accommodate your needs.

47.00 for lobster tail that was so tough the steak knife wouldn't cut it. I am sure it was frozen because it didnt taste good either.
They are way over priced. I wont be going their an more.

I was born and raised in Perth Amboy, I started going there decades ago. I moved away and went back to celebrate a birthday. The building has not been updated since opening. The fake, green carpet on the sidewalk has to go. Never looked good 30 years ago and now it's unsightly. The bar and restaurant needs new furniture and some updating. We were the first customers at 5 pm. Service was fine but food lacking. The Portuguese potatoes were brown, cold and overcooked. All 3 platters were the same. The kitchen staff should never have brought them out. The fried seafood platters were plentiful and the seafood crisp and hot. The rice was room temperature. Another mistake by the kitchen. The paella was packed with rice and seafood and meats. But tasted very fishy. The calamari was tough and rubbery. Overall, the experience was disappointing. Sad to see a former favorite not serve food up to par. Due to the fact we were the only table - our meals should have been perfect considering the kitchen was not busy. I sadly would not recommend this restaurant.
