The food was great and the service was quick. They had a lot of options to choose from to customize your own meal. I chose mussels, garlic sauce, mild heat, and added veggies, potatoes, corn and sausage to share.

This is an interesting place for the experience but is overpriced for what it is. Nice enough staff but would only go if you have never been and enjoy eating messily
