Food was good We had a new waitress so It was slower than we expected. Don’t order the fried calamari highly salty. Salad bar was delicious as well as stuffed shrimp as main course.

If there was any alcohol it would have been white wine. I don't think any of the seafood menu items included pork/chicken/meat broth.
