Thank you for visiting our site.

For over 25 years, we have proudly served Gulf Coast Seafood and Grilled Specialties including our delicious Lemon Butter Chicken and Beef Tenderloin. All entrees are prepared on site by our grill masters and served buffet style with the assistance of experienced servers. Please take a look at our Menu for more details or give us a call to discuss custom menu options.

I look forward to serving you and your guests.
