AAA Inspector Notes
The restaurant is known for its open kitchen and fresh, local seafood that is never frozen. Guests can view the seafood selections on ice as they walk by the wood-fire grill. The wood-grilled lobster and red snapper are just some of the popular choices. The menu is written on a large chalkboard since many options change with the days catch. Servers are friendly and will help make recommendations. Many meals are served in the large skillets they were cooked in to promote sharing at the table. Bright colored walls, dark hardwood flooring and a contemporary-style bar accent the casual dining space.
