Yummy!

Everything we tried was delicious!! The Saltimbocca was out of this world. Would definitely come back the next time we're in town.

We pulled into the parking lot and thought "Hmmm, I don't know about this" From the reviews we thought it was going to be a free standing nice looking building. But no, it's in a strip mall... really. But do not let that fool you and make reservations. The food was amazing! We had the Crab Dip for an appetizer,... More

Had the pleasure of eating here on a Saturday in July. We made reservations which is a good idea. This is a lovely restaurant in a strip mall, very pleasant atmosphere in the restaurant with excellent, professional service. They offered drink specials and I took advantage of their Orange Mojito which was tasty as well as refreshing and my husband... More

We found this gem using Trip Advisor. We were on a spur of the moment trip and just ended up here. It was not easy to find. I would strongly suggest the ownership consider relocating to a larger facility. The experience - We did not reserve ahead and ended up waiting in a small area until we were able to... More

Food was great, waitress was incredibly nice and well trained. Decor is high end to be in a strip mall never would of expected it. Only thing is expect to pay a lot more than usual for calabash.

Saw reviews on trip advisor so we decided to make reservations. Restaurant was tricky to find. Was promptly seated. All staff were friendly and sociable. Had clam chowder soup that was tasty and loaded with clams,but was very filling. Cesar salad was ordinary. I ordered fried flounder that was good but nothing special. My partner ordered their 4 fish calabash... More

Crab cakes were delicious as well as the salad (did not come with meal) - house dressing delicious. Blackened salmon was also delicious. Scallops were o.k. - very bland - Special dessert peach/blueberry cobbler was not good and was removed from our bill.

At times it could not be better and at other times the food is not up to par. The environment is quite monotone but on the other hand it was quiet. No noisy music blaring.

Tired of the usual greasy fried, previously frozen in China fish proffered by most Wilmington/Myrtle Beach seafood restaurants? Try this restaurant. My wife and I dine here occasionally, as we travel about thirty miles to get there. We always have excellent meals. The wait staff is very good.Don't judge this restaurant from the outside. Inside, it is very bistro/casual. Practically... More

This place is set off of the road, but it is a great place to meet friends or family for a delicious meal! Took my friend here for a birthday lunch and we loved everything we ordered.
