    best fish ever

    We had dinner on Saturday night and wow, it was awesome. We expected a long wait and even though it was packed, we only had to wait about 3 minutes. The waitress was very helpful and informative. The atmosphere is so much fun, there's fish tanks, murals on the wall, and sea turtles on the ceiling! My 4 year old was delighted when his drink came with a toy shark in it! My husband had the fish du jour and it was absolutely divine with clean, vibrant flavors and wonderful spices... my pasta was filled with fresh veggies and the sauce was rich without being too heavy. We will definitely return!
