Nothing special about the building or interior and a little loud, but the food is very good and they mix a good drink. We were there for a late lunch from about 1-3 and it was not crowded and we got good service. I will...More

The place looked like a little dive but some of the best food often comes from those places but not here. The food was mostly ok but nothing great. My husband did have to send his steamed shrimp back because they were not hot and...More
