Loved the fish tacos. Nice staff. Be prepared to wait to be seated in season - just like every other place.

I have only been there once and was very disappointed in the atmosphere. The food was O.K. but not good enough to bring me back. The prices were very reasonable but you got what you paid for. I will not be returning.

Food was sub-par. Crab cake was heavily breaded to cover up lack of crab; Caesar salad dressing was watered down; steamed vegetables over cooked; and calamari marinara sauce tasted more like ketchup. Only redeeming feature was bottle of wine.

Response from Robbis R | Property representative |
Hi Bill, thanks for asking! We have considered offering Conch Chowder as a special soup of the day, but it most likely won't be offered as a permanent staple on the menu. Please feel free to follow us on facebook, as we try... More
