I'm actually sitting inside the restaurant. The customer service service is horrible. The crab cake was very good. It was the only thing in this restaurant that was actually cooked to order. My waitress was very inconsiderate . She gave us bread 30 mins after we had salt down. We didn't even receive menus until 10 mins after we had... More

I was allured to this restaurant by the outside seating and overall atmosphere; however my dining experience was very disappointing. The waiter brought a high chair to our table that was filthy. It was caked in food and I held my baby instead of sitting him in it. My wedge salad had a piece of brown rotten lettuce in it,... More

Great place! Saw a few negative reviews but we were on vacation and wanted seafood. This was one of only a few options that popped up. We were there on a weekday late lunch - maybe that's why we didn't have any of the problems we read about. Our server was Andrew and he was awesome. About what you'd spend... More

We stopped for lunch on a Friday. My husband had the tuna salad, he raved about it. My daughter had macaroni and cheese, standard Kraft kid-fare, and I had a chicken salad. My salad was extremely lame. Iceberg lettuce with a few other leaves thrown in, chicken with absolutely no flavor...I wouldn't recommend it. However, the service was great, the... More

Great lobster and shrimp tacos! A nice location for family or business with excellent food and great service. The blue cheese chips and the chocolate cake are outstanding!

These guys do happy hour right. From 4-7 each weekday, they offer $5 top shelf cocktails (Grey Goose Martinis, Patrón Margaritas, etc) and $5-$7 appetizers (try the calamari or blue cheese chips!). Great menu with excellent seafood. A must-try in Chattanooga.

Very nice restaurant and fresh quality food. However, they were either short staffed or could not handle the volume of guests. We waited over an hour for our entry. We were apologized to by a couple workers but no other offer for the inconvenience.

As long time residents, we can compare BW to its historical noms. Brunch today was ruined by understaffing. And a "seafood" restaurant that ran out of both crab and tuna. One guest asked if this chain was in trouble or going out of business. Supposedly both a new GM and chef are on the way but the non existent service... More

Great atmosphere inside and some outdoor seating. Always a bustling place for all kind of gatherings (family, dates, business, etc.). The selection of seafood is very good. The food is also very good and prepared and presented well. Good selection of cocktails, beers and wines. Servers are friendly and pay attention to the details. I have dined her several times...
