Good Food, above average cost

food prepared and presented well; various eating area options available, but you won't be told of the choices; not all seats in waiting area are obvious; expect higher than average cost; wait staff were very good; not a place for children

Let's start with the location-a little tricky but NOT difficult. Use the GPS on your phone. LOL They have a call-ahead (no reservations) and the reception was warm and inviting. Score! Steve broke the seafood selections down as we fumbled around. The man is an awesome advisor. Apparently you can ask for him to be your waiter. Do yourself a... More

Fresh oysters served nicely chilled, a HUGE plate of fresh lightly battered and peeled shrimp, great seafood chowder crablegs and wifes chicken breast fillet. Polite and helpful waiter, food served promptly and all at right temperatures. $3 margarita was good too. Highly recommend

Walking in felt like going back in time 15 years, not in a good way. It had the feel of a place struggling to make a profit with quantity taking priority over quality. I had the fried oysters and they were more on the soggy side. Service was not good. The server was not knowledgeable of the menu or the... More

OK, We ordered a couple filet mignons, ribs, some chicken pasta thing as entrees and stuffed mushrooms and wings as appetizers... It really was just OK, not bad, not good, just OK.. For the price, I would have expected a bit more flavor. The meat was a bit overcooked, the ribs were fine, but something I could get prepackaged at... More

While the raw oysters were good, their version of Oysters Rockefeller left a lot to be desired. Drinks were very average and almost watered down. Our waiter was very out of it; spacey. Place needs updating.

Oyster Rooster shots, great steak and fish! The shots are hot but you must try one. The atmosphere was friendly, busy but in a good way, service was great and the staff very helpful and very accommodating. The bar can sure mix a drink and we left satisfied both by the cuisine and the bill. Can't wait to swing back... More

Wife and I went there in 2010 it was by far the worst food we have ever had before or since. The wait staff were terrible inattentive, lazy, unsupervised. The food was way overcooked, oversalted, a lot of msg. Do Not go here!!!!!!!

Food was ok not worth the travel and time. The cost was high for what we order. People were waiting in line for food that you could get at Joe's Crab Shack. Outdated
