    Meh. Don't bother to come here unless you just need space and drinks. Food is boring and service is mediocre.

    The halibut special is really good and the kale is prepared nicely, but it's $35 and you'll leave as hungry as you arrived

    Get the crab poppers and thank me later! Also, the wilted spinach salad (with chicken added) is my go to lunch, but the sea bass is supposed to be great, as well as the double burger

    Their cocktails are amazing, also the skirt steak and calamari. Stay away from the pasta.

    Ahi Tuna salad is my go-to dish here. Very good. For a good appetizer, try the corn bread.

    If you ask nicely they will sing you an old voodoo hymn. But you need to ask nice like, otherwise they'll cast a voodoo curse on you. Either way, they sing, so win-win.
