Don’t even waste your money! Expensive and the food was terrible! Hot food was cold. And they were out of crab legs, hush puppies, and fried shrimp most of the time we were there! Gross

My husband is a huge seafood guy and loved everything on the line. It was never super busy and atmosphere was very relaxed.
