Great food

My husband and I went to this restaurant for our anniversary meal on a Saturday pm. Small restaurant but service great and food wonderful. Pricey but it is worth it. Don't forget to try Dessert. Coffee fresh and strong. Beer is cold. We will be going again.

It's been a bit since I've written a review here so needed to give them a pat on the back! Had the stuffed crab and shrimp avocado and my husband had the chicken salad sandwich with hummus for lunch. Delish!!! Trent and his staff are so very talented. Always a pleasure :)

Celebrated 2 birthdays with a group on friends prior to a concert. What a great restaurant! Great food-shared the shrimp and grits and soft shell crab taco entrees with my husband because neither of us could decide. Both were fantastic. Everyone enjoyed their meal and cocktails. We will definitely go back.

I wish I were not one and a half hour away to dine there again sooner than later. I bet one cannot go wrong with anything on the menu which stays fresh with new concoctions.

Went with a group of friends for lunch today. I had the Gulf Seafood Salad. It was wonderful. Everything our group got looked good. I think they may need to expand this place!

What an absolute delight. The service, the food and the atmosphere combine for a wonderful experience. The menu changes often and everything (that means *everything*) was just fantastic. Fish, steak, seafood ... all just perfect. After dinner, special desserts. What a great night.

The food here is very good. It has a unique menu. The place is small and can get crowded at lunch, so get there early. Check out the daily specials too!

I've been here once before and was very satisfied. This time the restaurant was almost empty. It's a shame because this is a unique and interesting dining establishment. First, the wine list is small, but well chosen and VERY reasonably priced. Very few restaurants pass up the opportunity to gouge you if you like wine with your dinner. This is... More

They have a great menu to choose from. Shrimp and grits are one of their sepcials. Nice staff. A little hard to find. Down on side street.

We had heard of this restaurant from some friends and were so pleased! The atmosphere was cozy, the Chocolate Martii was superb and the seafood salad as HUGE, with large shrimp, crab meat and a large soft shell crab on top. Absolutely fantastic! Can't wait to go again!
