Midweek lunch ~ 2:30 pm Restaurant about 35% capacity. Widely varied menu, lots of diverse choices and daily special prices. Seafood gumbo ($5.50) unexceptional but still very good. Dolphin Fingers ($14) were delivered hot and were very tasty and filling. Shrimp Scampi ($15) was adequate and very good. Complimentary glass of house wine. $1 off beer. This is a fun... More

This place seemed dodgy as we walked to the front door and into the small foyer. But this just hid a fabulous eating place with great food experience, fabulous waiting staff and a memorable American eating experience. We were desperate for seafood and this did the trick. We would come back anytime.

Our menu offers a variety of options including Prime Rib, Steaks, Pasta, Entrée Salads, 10 ounce Burgers, unique Sandwiches, Award Winning Appetizers, and oversized Signature Desserts. Our portion sizes are large and our prices are reasonable. We have "Happy Hours" several times a week that feature all brands of beer, liquor and wine at up to 50% off, even on the weekends!
