So many selections> The Del Mar Shrimp was wonderful. All of the people in our party loved their entries. The wait staff was exceptionally attentive.

Only two people seemed to be working in the restaurant attending to guests. Only a few tables were taken up so I'm not sure of the popularity of the restaurant. However, both people were warm, courteous, and checked on us multiple times. They brought us...More
