  1. She should be pleased because the seafood is very fresh there.

    1. I think it is about the best here in S. Florida...A true fish house...delicious and fresh!

      1. Odd woman out, I wasn't overly impressed. The fish was fresh definitely. They really mucked up our drink orders, but not a big deal. I didn't care for the sauces used in our fish dishes. There were only two of us eating so I only had those two to taste.

        I would give it another chance if someone else pays LOL.

        1. They have some very nice happy hour appetizer specials. If you want to check this place out, that's a good option. The bar area is nice and has live music I believe on Fridays. Probably it is something like 4 to 7 but "check your local listings".

          1. Was very busy both times we went. Very nice atmosphere and the renovations they did were really great.
            The first time we had a young waiter who didn't seem interested in explaining anything. But we had what was among the most wonderful scallops from "massachusetts"? They were like butter. The rest of the meal was average.

            The next time we went they totally overcooked the lobster, overcooked the filet and the waiter was borderline hostile. The manager comped the meal but we didn't eat anything and had chinese food delivered to our hotel room next door at the hilton ( a good value) Management was apologetic and professional.
            Not sure if there will be a round three or not yet.
