Food and service good but they ran short (of food)

We went on a Sunday night, which is good for fighting crowds, but they also just went through a busy weekend and ran out of Salmon, Trout, Romaine lettuce, cheesecake and who knows what else. They may not be able to go out and grab salmon or trout, but someone could go to the store for lettuce... read more

During the wait for a supper table, my friend and I decided to have a drink at the bar. A 9-ounce glass of wine was $9 - with tax and tip, it was over $12! Yikes. The wait was approximately 20 minutes, not bad for a Friday night. I ordered the grilled rainbow trout which was really fantastic along with... More

The wife and I went here after a stressful visit at the Mayo clinic. We were meet by a fantastic person who was our waiter, his name was Willie. My wife ordered the Lobster Lovers Dream and it was made even better with Willie's suggestion of adding the Lobster topping. I had the fried shrimp. Both meals were great and... More

One thing you can always expect is new years eve is always busy and we were there just after 4pm so we actually beat the rush. Places that are chain restaurants always have certain policies that should followed and seem to be very inconsistent. On this occasion my soup which costed extra by the way was served cold. The waitress... More

This is one of my favorite places! I've been here many times with family and friends. There is something for everyone to eat. The food is always fresh and full of flavor. The staff is very friendly and the food is well worth the price. I don't think I could ever get tired of this place. BIG thumbs up for... More

We returned here and had the endless shrimp special. We both enjoyed the teriyaki shrimp. The rice pilaf is a nice alternative to a potato too. We splurged and also shared a piece of the carrot cake. We were both pleasantly surprised...it was very good! Our waitress was very good too.

Have greatly expanded their menu in the last year or two. While a chain seafood restaurant, they have made great strides to improve the selection and customer service of their staff. When downtown, it was hit/miss with both the staff and food quality. Been to the new location few times and most recently a couple weeks ago for family b-day.... More
