We were given some recommendations for some local places but none of the menus we saw really inspired us. Someone stumbled on this place on line and we gave it a try. We were surprised we needed a reservation for a Monday night, but we were glad we had one as the place was still packed at 8:00 PM. It... More

Flawlessly delicious from start to finish - so refreshing from the overcooked dry mahi or hope-you-like-nothing-but-hushpuppies from many coastal seafood places (even pricey ones!). I truly felt we were in good hands here. The steak and pork chops were apparently seasoned & cooked perfectly (daughter and husband loved so much they didn't really want to share). Blackened mahi was meltingly... More

My first time to eat here and was not disappointed with the menu. The food was fabulous and customer service was first rate. The manager even came it to check up on us. Recommend you make reservations as it fills up quick.

My wife and I dined here last night and the food was excellent. Her tuna was prepared perfectly and my soft shell crabs were done to perfection. Overall, the food was great but other things distracted from this being a 5 star restaurant. Within 2 minutes of getting our drink order, we were served our salads which had obviously been... More

We arrived one evening for dinner without reservations (not a good thing at this busy place) but the hostess was able to seat us in a short period despite the place being very busy and full. Our meals were great - scrimp and grits - about the best we ever had and fried oysters. They served the best sweet potato... More

We enjoyed ourselves here. The staff was friendly. Service was quick. The lighting was dim. Food was good but a bit pricey. Upstairs bar area has dining which is more intimate. We had reservations on a Sunday evening and were seated immediately.

We arrived without a reservation around 9:00 on a high school graduation night. We had to wait for a table which would have been more enjoyable if there was a waiting area and possibly the ability to have a drink during the wait. Once seated we again had to wait for a server to come take our drink orders and... More

After reading reviews, our group of 11 decided to make a reservation for dinner. Service was impeccable, and every single one of us enjoyed our meals. Best soft shell crabs any of us had ever had! And a huge menu of other tempting and delicious choices. We would all recommend highly.

I have visited this restaurant many times. Tonight I was very disappointed. I always get the shrimp and oyster combination plate. Not sure if they changed their recipe but the oysters were too bready and had no flavor. The blackened shrimp was good. They were busy so the service was not good. It took forever to get condiments and I... More
