Been visiting 316 for years with family and friends. Each trip seems to be better than the last. Flounder, Grouper and other seafood orders are cooked to perfection. Owner is always welcoming and staff is professional and knows what seafood catch of the day is available. Not an oyster eater...but friends swear by their oyster bar. Highly recommend if you...

Beware of certain waitstaff at this establishment. I love the food here and generally walk away satiated with a smile on my face. However, our last experience left me sick to my stomach because of the way we were treated by our waitress. Don't get me wrong, she was super bubbly, talkative and sweet. She complimented our clothes and made... More

I was excited to try this place despite some terrible reviews. It wasn't as bad as people make it out to be. It has 50's diner style decor which is a little weird but I'm there for the food. As soon as we sat down, we were brought a big basket of hush puppies, those were delicious. They had a... More

Came about 5:30 and were seated immediately. Waitress was very helpful and made a number of suggestions. Hushpuppies were sweet and very nice. Fish was fresh, prepared well and was something different for me. Accompanied by string beans that were ok, but I don't mind canned beans and this is what they tasted like. Overall, a good experience.

Had dinner here with a work group. Ate at the bar and the bartender was very nice and she did a good job serving the group. The food itself was ok- nothing to write home about but not bad. Overall, thought this was an ok place. I wouldn't necessarily recommend it.

Had dinner here on a business trip...was a decent meal for the price. I had BBQ chicken, as I'm not much of a seafood eater. The meal was good. The shrimp and seafood looked and tasted (according to my coworkers) very good. Had a nice bartender that served our 7-person group rather quickly, and she was nice. decor was toncahtbwith.

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
