Now Celebrating 20 Years!

“If you’re looking for a warm and vibrant fine-dining experience with impeccable service, we hope you will join us for lunch, dinner, or Happy Hour.”

Since our opening in September of 1999, we have set new standards by focusing on impeccable service and a unique style of cuisine that centers around grilled, broiled, and steamed seafood from all over the US as well as our unique brand of Kettle cooking, tender hand-cut Certified Angus Beef® steaks, and other unique offerings. Our staff has been together for years, and this comfortable atmosphere helps to create a unique and unforgettable experience for our guests.

Join us for an Extraordinary Experience!

Most any time of the year, this stylish Strand-area restaurant is packed to the gills, so reservations are definitely recommended.

Shiny stainless-steel buckets produce the menu items identified as “from the kettle:’ including a full-bodied-gumbo, the island’s best steamed mussels and a lighter version of shrimp scampi. As good as all of these are, the kitchen turns out some of its own wonders. Seafood catches change daily but are always reliable. A recent visit hooked tasty versions of grilled snapper, salmon and sea bass. This restaurant could hold its own anywhere. If it were in Houston, in fact, you would never be able to get a table.”
