Food was terrific, and prices were very reasonable for a nice atmosphere restaurant. Early bird special is a great option for food and drinks.

We walked into this restaurant at seven p.m. and it was almost empty- that should have been our first clue. When we asked the owner/manager if it was too late to be served, he grunted and walked us to a bare table. Our server, a...More

Stopped in for Labor Day dinner. The specials were Rockfish over cous cous and Seafood Jambalaya. Both were outstanding. The waiter, Chris, was very attentive and personable. A very good stop in the Food Lion Plaza.
