My wife and I had been talking about trying this restaurant for several months...So, we stopped in while visiting the area and were very pleased with the service and food! The staff were very friendly and professional. The food was GREAT! We will be back.

Decided to try their Wednesday special "All you can eat snow crab". Couldn't believe how slow the service was! Took several minutes to get seated, and the hosted seemed frazzled. It was busy, but wasn't even close to full. Got seated, and it was over...More
