This might not be THE best seafood meal I've ever had but it was very good and the kitschy and fun atmosphere was delightful. I would come here again if ever this way and I recommend it 100%, our waitress was very accomodating.

Good food, many different drinks. Quirky decor of the sea life. Kid friendly and nice kids menu. Bands play on the weekends. Tons of parking. Reasonable prices.
