I do not recommend this place at all. Service was horrendous. The food was bad. My husband and I got our food and we had to wait extra ten minutes for my children's food.

Generous portions fresh seafood prepared Nayarit style savory briny exotic flavored dishes with plenty of spicy kick. Almost like Cajun but better. Recommend the stuffed crab. This is by no means like your typical seafood platters although you can ask for special preps if you are not a foodie or daring... But so worth the try..and it's byob
