What a great place. Amazing fresh fish you can take home or they'll cook for you right there and eat. I had the grilled swordfish on arugula. Grilled perfectly! Excellent portion sizes for lunch. Definitely worth trying. I'll be back

We were amazed at all the fresh fish selections. Luckily, they serve lunch from 11-2 and we had an amazing Mahi Mahi Blackened Sandwich. This is a cute little local spot where everyone is friendly! Loved it.
