    Beware! Parking attendants downstairs are very shady & PURPOSELY MISCHARGE & STEAL your money. They wanted to charge $28 then changed to $21, & then $5. Complete RIP OFF & SCAM ARTISTS here!

    This place is a disappointment, especially for the prices. If you're going to serve bland seafood, it better be the freshest available and it's just not.
