Good food great location

Great little seafood place on the water. Food was good, but slightly overpriced especially since it was off season. Waiter was great, but hostesses were not. Valet parking is a must.

Great location and view, but food and service were a little disappointing. Had reservations to celebrate a birthday and mentioned wanted good view and reason for visit with reservation, they did nothing regarding the birthday (never mentioned) and did not get that great of a table. Food was pretty good, but fish was under cooked and had to be sent... More

We have not dined there in the restaurant, but went one night on a date night. Got there at six and scored a table in the perfect spot to watch the sunset. We ordered the shellfish tower and everything on it was spot on, the clams are even from right across the body or water you are looking at. I've... More

Service was....unusual. Got the feeling the staff may have been at happy hour before coming to work. Food was over-cooked. Nice location.

We had a very nice server, she was accommodating to the kids and was very attentive. Usually we sit outside to watch the sunset but this time didn't want to wait so we sat inside. Was nice and good atmosphere. The food was delicious. I had the special, grouper stuff w a crabcake. Was really good. Will definitely go back!

A good seafood restaurant next to the water. The service was efficient and friendly. I particularly like the crab cake and the mahi mahi, and my wife enjoyed the fried green tomato. Wine was reasonably priced. Would encourage you to go in time for sunset.

Absoultly no complaints.. It's a small place and it was busy buts it's on the bay so there is plenty to do outside while you wait. This might be one of our favorite restaurants on the island, some of the best seafood I have had. If you like bisque you need to come here! Highly recommend

Make a reservation for the patio (even in the winter months, it's enclosed) to see a terrific lowcountry sunset! Great food as well, my husband had the seafood broil (a lot of food!) and I had a wonderful piece of grilled salmon. Colin was our waiter, very nice and knows a lot about the area.

We had a great meal. We had made reservations, which, on a pleasant Friday night, was a good thing. Four of us enjoyed dinner together- great service, great food. I forgot to tell them that I can't have black pepper, and they redid my entree immediately. I'd go back in a second... my only problem would be deciding whether to... More

We choose this restaurant from some literature in our hotel room. I have to say this is one of the best seafood restaurants I've eaten in! I highly recommend the Chef's special dish of scallops and asparagus. Be sure to try the blue cheese cole slaw. Everything was delicious including the warm, freshly baked sour dough bread.
