“This is our family staple!! We love going during happy hour and getting half priced appetizers. Especially the Volcano Shrimp paired with the Arugula Salad! They have an outdoor area that is great for letting the kids run around and play a little corn hole toss. Can not go wrong trying this place. There is something for everyone on the menu.”
