We went here twice in 4 days. The wrap was very good. The coconut shrimp was really good, but the best thing we had was the Yucatan Shrimp! Very tasty. The service was a little slow, but we were not in any big hurry.

Restaurant was busy, lively and full of fun. Shrimp and oysters were great and prices are reasonable. Happy hour was "happy." While parking is a challenge, we plan to go back.
