      Ate there tonight. The drinks were good.
      We ordered 1/2lb peel and eat shrimp, and it was frozen shrimp on iceberg lettuce. The shrimps were tiny, slightly larger than the mini cocktail shrimp. The hot butter didn't compliment the cold shrimp at all. Worst of all, it was 12 bucks, and there could not possibly have been half a pound of shrimp there. Also, kind of gooey and overcooked. Bummer, dude. Why not use fresh, local shrimp? It's much more green! (and yummy).

        By local, I meant NC, the menu says theirs comes from the gulf coast. I don't know if it does or not... (seemed like sysco shrimp)

      Funny idea. Heard the owners were nice too. Too bad that we can't just have bars in Asheville without them serving food. Outdated private club law should be reviewed.

          Is the decor & menu retro - tiki bar? Where is the yacht club? I'm not familiar with it at all.
