    You wanna know where the oysters shine? In the fried Pacific oyster salad, that’s where. They were cooked beautifully, sporting a burnished color but not too much coating, and plump and juicy within Read more

    You have to get the alligator. If I see it on a menu, I always order it. It is very appetizing. The service here is nice. The atmosphere is great for a dinner with a small group of friends.

    Аллигатор по вкусу похож на курицу. Less spicy — самые бесполезные слова в заведении, все острое. Но зато отличное обслуживание и цены. И даже острая еда вкусная.
