Great seafood in a comfortable family environment. Walked in and were immediately welcomed and seated. Very friendly and accommodating staff. Food all brought out at the same time. Good portion size, served hot. Would go back anytime.

The service here was great. The drinks were very good. The food wasn't too bad. If you are looking for a casual night out, this is a good place to check out.
