The food is delicious, we had Jambalaya, Fish Tacos, Salmon, Mahi Mahi, Clams, Calamari. The Calamari was done to perfection! Not chewy like most places. The specialty drinks are awesome. Peach tea, lavender lemonade, apple pie, etc... We will definitely be going back!

Had to ask server for our drinks a second time. Meal came out with missing items listed on menu. When brought to servers attention we were told they were out of item and no offer was given for a replacement. Not a horrible experience just suggestions to improve others experience.

Service is always slow! Late October and not very warm inside. Burgers/wings taken off the menu completely which put one of the parties in a food choice predicament. GOOD: Ambience and if you don’t want the salad with dinner, you can choose another side item.
