Very good food. Upscale but the tables were almost touching. Small place! Excellent seafood. Must get a reservation to get in. Seafood was wonderful. Hate that it closed. Oxford is a very competitive town for restaurants.

Used to be a really good restaurant, but since the original owner left it's gone downhill. Food very inconsistent, poor service. There are many other better places in Oxford to go for this type of food.

We found this place on a very crowded Friday night before the Texas/Ole Miss game. Service was a bit spotty as expected given the crowd, food didn't stand out but it was nice enough. The food/service was probably more worthy of a three star review, but given the crowds I'm adding an extra star.

Rude waitstaff who either ignore you or make fun of you to your face, horrific food--truly beyond belief how awful it is. Over-priced, loud, creepy.

indifferent, even emanations of belligerence, from kitchen. Food: small portions; cold when should be hot; sauce - same as off any grocery store shelf; very slow; very unapologetic; strained atmosphere. Someone should clean out that kitchen and train the staff to be more than simply civil. Some wait staff I observed appeared, from a distance, more agreeable. Just make another... More

Being new to Oxford we were searching for a place to eat and ran in to this one. The atmosphere, food, and waiter were all excellent as was the price.

208 Lamar - the finest overall place we can find in town. There is usually a good group at the bar when you enter, noticing right away that the lighting did not change when you came in - sorta dark, which is great.
