Words cannot state how happy I was with the service and food. Staff was very assertive to my needs, food was excellent. Waitress Rachel was awesome, made great suggestions, stopped by my table often to be sure I was doing fine. Manager stopped and asked if everything was good and if I needed anything she would be there. I had... More

Most fun dinner in Orlando so far. Jovan was outstanding and food was very good. Kids loved Cottoneyed Joe dance and staff was friendly. Made my son very happy on his 8th birthday.

Service was a little sketchy. I don't mind if someone doesn't fake a smile for me, that's cool, but I prefer not to feel like my patronage of an establishment is a huge inconvenience. Love the apple crumble here and the ice cream was surprisingly high quality.

We were on holiday in Orlando and we enjoyed this so much that we had it twice. It's a fun place where the servers are hippy and humorous. We enjoyed the cajun steam pot most.

got one of the crab steamer buckets, $25 I think, six mussels which were a bit gritty along with crab legs. The legs were spindly and thus the meat was lacking and tough to get to. It was a labor intensive meal with low payoff. Next time pick the legs/crab that have FAT legs or if they offer just claws.... More

I've been here a few times now and there are several constants: the food is delicious, the staff are friendly and helpful and the atmosphere is great. Its a real fun family restaurant with everyone sharing food and having a laugh with the staff. The snow crab in particular is delicious- perfectly steamed for a sweet, delicate taste. Other notable... More

Our waiter Eric was extremely friendly and accommodating . The manager came by to make sure we were being taken care of. The seafood hush puppy pot pie was hot and tasty. Red fish and lobster was ,are to my likely...not spicy. The price a little high for not getting a salad. Be sure to get a coupon.
