Great service for our party of 8. Wait staff was friendly and informative about specials. Raw oysters were small and tasty. Blackened spicy shrimp and risotto were exceptional.

Nice revisit, However did find the fried fish a bit greasy. Still tasted good and the visit was enhanced by a very nice wait staff. Key lime pie. Very good
