Food is always fresh. Staff is hit or miss. I wish they would post the price for the all you can eat on the website.

We choose this restaurant because it got good reviews. The staff was very friendly. We were seated right away. The menu is nice and there are many choices. I had the lobster tail and that was very good.

My husband and I both chose from the special menu, he had the yellowtail and I had the mahi. They each had tasty garnishes and sides. The service was quick and helpful. Would recommend this restaurant to others.
