The food was great the service was great as well. But the manager Tabitha was very rude. It seemed as if it was a hassle for her to assist you with anything.

Although I don't have the budget to eat here often, when I do get the opportunity, its always a pleasant experience. Just going in for the seafood platter, and water - is cheaper than eating on the boardwalk (with waters costing $4 each), so for...More

Service was bad, food was bad, I want to find something positive to say but I can't. While I didn't expect 5 star service I did expect much more than what we received.

Wait was not bad as we ate early for dinner. Prices were a little high but we expected that from a novelty restaurant. Waitress was new (she and another "helper" told us at the start) but she never got any help. Waited over 15 minutes...More

We ate here on a Friday evening. We had to wait about 5 minutes. The service was great, the food was very very good. The cocktails were perfect, I didn't get the name of the bartender, but she was great.

I'm sorry that I am not aware or know of a definitive answer, but I think it would probably be closed that night. However, I would suggest calling the restaurant directly before making any plans in advance.
What is the dress code for the men for the restaurants? Can they wear shorts with collared shirts?

That should not be any issue. The dress code is very casual, and the atmosphere is relaxed, and most servers try to make it fun. You must of course follow the No Shirt, No Shoes, No Shorts/Pants NO SERVICE policy enforced... More
