Summary: One of a set of unique restaurants in the Triangle area. We stopped by on a whim, looking for something different. We were impressed with our friendly server, and the wonderful selection of quite different, yet appetizing-sounding entrees. Expect crowds usually - there's even a pool table in the waiting area, if you can manage to get a turn on it.

Pros: A quiet Tuesday evening, with the place pretty much to ourselves at almost closing time. Turns out this is an unusual night for the restaurant, but we still enjoyed it! The food was excellent; this restaurant specializes in seafood, yet offers a good selection of chicken, beef, and non-meat options. We shared a Soup Sampler so we didn't have to decide which soup to try, and enjoyed them all. Krista got the special, a pretzel-encrusted Mahi with veggies and onions. David ordered a peppered gouper, surrounded by withered spinach. This spinach was really, really, good - going to have to try making that sometime!

Cons: Crowded on regular nights; expect to wait an hour or two.

Who: Those bored with the regular chain food, and want to experience something new and delicious. It's something like Bahama Breeze, but not so exotic. Get someone to watch the kids, unless yours really like trying new and funny-looking stuff.
