    Always love the food here, never had a bad meal! Great service, management obviously cares a great deal. Sometimes it's a little dark inside, but weekends are awesome, you can see live steel drums

    Lobster bisque is too die for. Chunks of lobster in every bite, beautifully seasoned and just the right consistency. Crab cakes w/ mango salsa are also yummy and there cole slaw was fabulous.

    Food is decent, but all priced a couple bucks beyond it's value (ex: $16 "feature" salads are iceberg lettuce - I mean, c'mon). Staff is the saving grace - super attentive. Ask for Ray!

    This is one of those places which should be more popular than it is. Good food, portions could be a bit better but they're decent. Unique menu items and pleasant atmosphere. (3 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    It was pretty good. The Rumba salad was a little disappointing, but the fish was delicious and cooked really well. Awesome outdoor seating area as well. I'll be back.

    They aren't sure how the $10 special got posted but its not valid. See Shannon (awesome dude) at the bar for great service and a cool atmosphere.
