I go here primarily in the spring and summer when attending the local minor league baseball park. I am not really a fish lover, but I always seem to find something on the extensive menu that intrigues me and I have never been disappointed with my selection. The wait staff is friendly and always happy to answer any questions I... More

I went with 4 other people on a Monday night. We were seated immediately and given a huge daily menu. Look at the daily menu instead of their standard menu. I ordered fresh oysters and a grilled yellowfin tuna dish. My table shared a dessert. The dessert was HUGE! The food was great. Everyone enjoyed their food and it was... More

Second time I visited restaurant for buiness. The service is top notch. The atmosphere is conducive to conduct business. My issue is the fish is average at best. Nothing stands out. Need to do a better job in the kitchen.

Stopped in for a quick dinner-this was probably our 5th or 6th visit. Food is always good and there's always a great selection. Tonight we were escorted to the worst table in the restaurant-the one right outside the kitchen entrance. It was odd because there were open tables elsewhere. We requested another table and there was no issue accommodating us... More

Thank you for your review, we always appreciate feedback. We are pleased to know we were able to relocate you to a more comfortable table. As far as why you were sat at that particular table when there were other tables open is because our servers have designated sections and to be fair we seat guests according to turn. However,...

Great soup. Prices could be more reasonable but everything seems to be more pricey on the East Coast (compared to the South).

Me and my friends decided to try out this place. Two of my friends are really into beer and that was the perfect place. It wasn't many choices that stood out to me so I decided to go with the crab cake sandwich and it was so good. The prices are a little high also

Nice place and very good service. Food is excellent but I think the portions are small for what you pay for.
