We had a good meal and the waitress was great. A little too noisy for us and the room was freezing. Great location and easy to walk to from hotel.

All you can eat crab legs caught my eye! Not an inexpensive restaurant, but I believe you're getting money worth. White fish was also nice. Service was good. Lots of families, which turned into a less pleasant atmosphere with unruly children. Not the restaurants fault,...More
