It was excellent. It was odd. It was delicious. We will definitely go back.

First, the important stuff: BYOB, Cash only, reservations recommended, open Thurs-Sat lunch through dinner, dinner will set you back about $40 per person for an app and an entree with tax and tip, menu is primarily seafood and I don't recall anything vegetarian other than salad.

More details: the ambience leaves much to be desired. It's casual, not fine dining by any stretch. The main dining room seemed to have appropriate lighting but the linoleum floors and clearly recycled decor, tables, chairs, and booths added a dive feel that you might not expect. The kitchen is open and well lit and Frank (the chef) and his team are sort of on stage as you dine. Unfortunately we were seated in the side dining room which is small, has one booth table and one table that they set up for large groups so we couldn't observe the show.

The menu has maybe 10 apps and 10 entrees? They had a couple special apps and three special entrees. Almost everything was seafood save for a steak dish and a chicken pasta thing. California inspired with some classics thrown in. Desserts are homemade in house and sounded very good but homestyle not frou-frou.

Here's some of the oddness. Our server asked how we heard about them. I said I read reviews on the internet. She laughed and said, "Oh, some of our customers think we need the extra business but we really don't. That's why we don't advertise." I paused for a minute and asked if it was Ok that we had come there for dinner. She laughed and said of course. I guess they don't advertise and still do a brisk business on the three days they are open. The menu has some FAQs on the back with no answers, just the questions. Stuff like,

If the chef is Frank, then who is Henry?
How long have you been open?
Where do you get your seafood?
Why don't you advertise?
Do I need to feed the meter?
What does it come with?

etc.

I actually would like to know the answers to many of these questions but I felt like we didn't know them well enough yet, lol.

Anyway it was a great evening out all around and we'd like to go back. Service was excellent.

I'm not sure how kid friendly they would be. No kids menu that I saw and the apps are in the $8-$12 range with entrees in the low to mid $20 range. For my little ones that is too much cash to take them out for.
