The staff is attentive and happy to please. The Seafood Alfredo was full of lobster and shrimp with a lovely Alfredo sauce. The snapper was well prepared and delicious. Prices are reasonable for the quality and service.

We didn't take pictures either. What you see is what you get. It is VERY nice. But you go in wearing whatever. They don't care. (They'll also give you bug spray if you need it since it is an open air place.)
