Excellent seafood served in HUGE portions, bring a friend or take some home with you. It is a small setting with minimal room and a friendly wait staff.

The outside is deceiving as this place is a diamond in the rough. The service was spectacular, the chef was friendly and entertaining and the food was amazing! Make sure to sit at the bar and you can't watch the magic happen!
