Waitress was nasty and uncaring. Was promised a “make up” meal from manager via US mail but never received it, even after calling back twice and speaking to manager.

This restaurant is off the beaten path and not much to look at on the outside, but it is definitely a hidden gem. Recommend making a reservation to get priority seating. The seafood is very good with daily specials.
