We had their Monday night summer menu and it was very reasonably priced and delicious. Our waitress was delightful. Friendly and real. Even though they're in a strip mall the atmosphere was very pleasant.

Florida casual. That means just about anything you feel comfortable wearing. Shorts, etc. are ok. Can be a little cool inside but not cold or chilly.
