I really loved the atmosphere, the food was delicious and spicy but the best was the waitress who truly made us feel at home in Florida.

Enjoyed the food and atmosphere. Music was great and always love to see new artist perform. I had the oxtails with rice and beans. It was really hot (heat wise) ad spicy. Great food. The service was great too. I had no real issues.
