We had an early dinner here. The atmosphere was pleasant and modern. The service was excellent. My stuffed flounder was over cooked but my husband's scallops and shrimp were excellent. The calamari appetizer was excellent also. My daughter was not thrilled with the seafood agrautin (it was spicy) and fried shrimp (breading tasted funny). After reading all the reviews I... More

Went here based on a friend's recommendation and ended up having an unforgettable meal. Everything about this place was great. Great food, great drinks, and great service. The crab fried rice was amazing and better than Eddie V's. The sautéed crabcake was a good size and cooked to perfection. I applaud the chef for this since a lot of restaurants... More

As a former student of the culinary Institute of America, I tend to be very fussy about restaurants. My first experience with shrimp boat was with a large party. Often times in the restaurant business large parties will challenge both the kitchen and the servers. Both the kitchen staff and the servers met the challenge without any problems. The server...

My wife found this place through TBT Weekend section. We decided to try. We enjoyed the great atmosphere and live music. The food? Not so much. The category 4 tasting dinner was mediocre at best. Tasting menus are supposed to be thought out and special, not stuff thrown together with a menu that sounds interesting. This place has great potential... More

We went with 8 people everyone was pleased with there food. I would highly recommend the fried green tomatoes appetizer. I had the crab cakes which were also delicious. The piocolada dipping sauce for the coconut shrimp was also very good. They also have a few decent beers to choose from. The staff was spot on and very attentive. My... More

We tried this place due to the reviews on tripadvisor and really enjoyed ourselves. We showed up on a Saturday night and wish we had reservations, but were lucky enough to grab some dinner at the bar. They include a unique menu on Saturday's for a pretty good price that we heard rave reviews on, but we weren't able to... More
