Very Good Seafood

We were two blocks away at the La Quinta after a long days drive and wanted take out to eat in our room. Picked it up on TA and gave it a shot. We both ordered the shrimp and scallop alfredo pasta. Came with a side salad and garlic bread. Take out is always a crap shoot but their presentation... read more

I ended up here because everyplace I tried had a 45 minute plus wait. The restaurant was clean and there are many menu options. The menu did have an option and price for wine but was promptly told they did not serve any. The food was very processed and seemed to be served in an "assembly line" fashion. It seemed... More

I tried the crab legs and the only problem I found was there wasn't enough crab legs on the order for the price. Will definitely eat here again

Not much on atmosphere but seated quickly although the place was busy. Would NOT recommend the crab cakes. Mostly bread and almost no crab meat. Service was fast and except for the crab cakes everything else was good. Nice size portions too. For the price the place was a good choice to stop and eat. Plan to stop there again... More

The sea food is ok, a little greasy, but not to bad. Depending on the time of day during lunch and dinner thr wait time quite long.

Of course this is dependent on what you get, but the food is very heavy. If you're in the mood to indulge in a lot of deep fried seafood, this is the restaurant for you. The atmosphere is quaint but kitschy. The server was very friendly and prompt with drinks and the food. The food was just very heavy.

Got the Mahi filet with baked patato. My wife got Shrimp Pasta. Both plates came very fast and very lovely. On the side we had a salad, which was very fresh. People here were nice. Would definitely go back.

This was one of my parents favorite places to go. So on my visit I took them here for dinner. The service was great. The portions were plenty. That is all for the positive, oh and the cheese grits rocked! We were there around 7:45 in the evening. I ordered grilled shrimp skewers, crab cakes, with cheese grits and slaw.... More

We had the shrimp and Scallop platter and it was very tasty. We are over from the UK on vacation and this is probably one of the tastiest meals we have had in the USA. We didn't manage to finish it though but that wasn't due to the quality of the food - we are just not used to large... More
