Been there a few times and it just keeps getting better, Even though it's off season it was still crowded. Great happy hour deals and live music. We went for the all you can eat ribs and shrimp. Food and service was top notch.

Food is good, pricing is in line for entree level eats and cooked well. Typical bar drinks and such. With so many choices I don't see why anyone would not put this one in a top 10 to visit in the area.
