    Liked the crab cake sandwich but the iced tea was weak beyond belief.

    Last time here was probably 10 years ago. Now I remember why it took so long to return. Poor service:our waitress never showed, took 15 minutes for a different waiter to notice we hadn't been helped

    Avoid the dirty rice, and ask for fries without salt.
