Very good food, good service. Can get very noisy. A few things, I feel, are a little pricey, but it's also worth it for the fresh fish.

I don't have a clue what the rating is from the health dept. All I know is that we were not to impressed with the place. And who cares what the health dept. rates it. It's about us if we are satisfied customers. Thanks,
