The outdoor seating area has a fabulous view! As for the food I would not eat here again! The seafood platter was completely over cooked and tasteless except for the oysters. The fries were limp from being over saturated in grease! We left hungry and in search of something else to eat!

Great food, fabulous ambiance, good service. What more could you ask for. This place was everything we could have asked for in a seafood dive.

Food was good. Server was busy, and we didn't see him for long lengths of time. When we were done eating, he asked us if we wanted our drinks to go. We drank those before he came back for our check. Despite that, we would do back. We liked eating right on the dock.

Our original server took our order and then we became invisible. She would walk by our table as if we were not there. After waiting 45 minutes, we stopped another waiter to check on our order. He brought us our food after another 20 minutes wait but our food was wrong. We apparently went invisible again. We finally just decided... More

Stopped in for quick lunch date with my husband. Appetizers were good and servers were attentive. Great view overlooking the water

We loved sitting outdoors for lunch at this fun nautical-themed eatery. It was fun sitting right up next to the piers and watching the boats come in. My friend and each had the lobster bisque, which we had heard was delicious -- and it did have a good flavor, with sherry peppers. But it arrived lukewarm. The hot tuna croissant... More

My wife and I went for a late lunch, been there several times and the waterfront atmosphere is the best part. This time it took us 10 minutes after being seated before anyone even acknowledged us. We gave our order and waited an hour for our food. When we saw people who came in after us getting their food I... More

What actually happened is that this man phoned me and began making accusations and derogatory comments about a particular employee. He quickly and hysterically informed me that he had contacted an attorney and this was a felony offense. He also explained how we were incredibly busy the day he visited and had to wait an hour for a table, and... More

First time visit for my wife and I. Overall, we had a very good experience. I ordered the Mahi-Mahi Tacos and my wife had a grilled cheese with tomato 7 bacon. We were very pleased with the quality and portion size of each dish. I will agree with most of the comments in regards to the menu being overpriced, but... More

Not sure what to do with this restaurant. We were greeted by a hostess wearing a shirt that said 'Saucy Wench' (which I wasn't ready to explain to my 8 year old) and there is a sign saying it is an Italian restaurant, but there isn't much Italian on the menu. Are we pirates or Italian? Were there any Italian... More

This restaurant is situated next to the water. The outdoor bar is just at the entrance and is definitely a great place to meet the locals, relax with the family, and enjoy the beautiful Carolina weather. The service at the bar was warm and friendly. I would advise not going past the bar due to the mediocre food you select... More
