    Was there on opening day and the popcorn shrimp were full
    shrimps, not just bits. The shrimp tacos were delicious also. The
    manager, Brett, was friendly and helpful and should have nickname
    “the dude” since he reminds me of the Jeff Bridges character. Wait
    persons were smiling and friendly but still need a bit of training.
    On the downside, my friends credit card was somehow charged 4 times
    for the happy hour visit. Still trying to get it straightened
