We were looking for a restaurant to get good food while still not disrupting everyone with our 5 year old and 2 month old children. We telephoned ahead for reservations and arrived right at the reservation time. They were clearing a table and it took only about 5 minutes to be seated, which in my eyes is perfectly acceptable on... More

What the restaurant lacks in looks, it makes up for quality food and good service. Our waiter was a little quirky, very friendly and had the courses running smoothly. I had the lobster stuffed ravioli which was one of the best seafood dishes I've had. Several large ravioli sat on a delicious tomato sauce and were interspersed with large seared... More

We were a party of ten here on vacation with some finicky eaters. We sat upstairs which we thought was comfortable and the decor was perfect. Our server was completely on point and he was extremely tentative. The food was out of this world. We ordered an eray of foods. First we had the scallop nachos, crab cakes, and wings.... More

The seafood at this restaurant was some of the best I've ever eaten. The scallop-tortilla appetizer was awesome. The service was fast and professional. I would recommend making a reservation during the busy months - after 6 pm it gets busy. The building is a converted house and the interior wood work is beautiful. The tables on the first floor...

Near the river, but no real view from anywhere in the restaurant. They were out of mahimahi and andouille sauce on a Monday night. The stairs are very steep. One of the bathroom stalls was out of order, and they had removed the door. Service was pretty good. The food was just OK. I had the crab cakes and roasted... More

We started off with the Crab Dip, She Crab Soup and the Sweet Potato muffins all delicious!! Two of us had the Shrimp platter (one broiled... More

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
