    NOT WORTH THE MONEY. Crab cake tasted like filler, not crab. Shrimp tacos tasted like they were dipped in a taco seasoning packet. I would go to any other seafood restaurant & spend my $100

    Service sucks. Ordered salmon got tuna thirty minutes later. And when I sent Back the tuna it would take a while to cook. Settling for a big Mac tonight. At least McDonald's would can cook that right!
