We had an excellent experience from start to finish. The food and the cocktails were absolutely delicious, and the server (Sloan) was very friendly and attentive. We couldn't have asked for a better evening.

Not the place I'd go for steamed crabs. White table cloths not picnic tables covered w/newspapers for opening and consuming steamed crabs.
