Leisurely Meal

Nice looking place with lots of fish tanks and huge picture windows overlooking the marsh. Told the server I was there for a nice leisurely meal, no rush, and she was excellent at both pacing the meal and not pestering me. The food was very good and I enjoyed watching the fish in the tank at the... read more

I got the teriyaki tuna and shrimp meal. This was $17.99 and only came with 1 side. The tuna was advertised as rare but was very well done. The tuna was not a steak it was more like 1 Oz pieces. I did enjoy the hushpuppies! Service was ok.

My son's burger was so bland, didn't even taste like the salt and peppered it. My hubby and I got the fried cod and shrimp special. It was so greazy. Where u would think the fish would have been crisp, it was soft and dripping grease. Our plated were pooled w grease. Weve been coming here since it opened and... More

Came for dinner on a Friday evening. Place wasn't busy at all. There was 4 of us. Waitress was training another server. Was a disater from the moment we walked in. Should have left then. Service was really really slow. Ordered the special...wasn't anything special about it. Steaks weren't even cooked right or the same. Lobster was like rubber. Sweet... More

Friendly staff and great service, food was a little bland for our liking. The hushpuppies were very good, even my little ones like them even though they had jalapenos in them!

I don't get all the negative review mentioning bland food. My scallops were very tasty. The hushpuppies that they put on the table as bread were warm soft and just a bit spicy. I could have made a meal out of those. The service was very attentive and they were cooperative on substitutions of sides. Portions were decent and prices... More

Speed of service was poor and the restaurant was not packed Had to remind waiter numerous times of drinks and condiments Waiter didn't know menu items and acted nonchalant when questioned about the description of menu items Ordered the Gilly pot and it came with about 2 cups of broth at bottom. Was told to basically be happy about the... More

First I want to say that our server was friendly and attentive, and definitely the bright spot of our visit. But from there it went downhill in a hurry. The decor is cheesy nautical, very tacky and had a run-down feel. The wooden booths are without cushions/upholstery and not at all comfortable. The complimentary hushpuppies were nothing but fried floury... More
