Waitress appeared under the influence. Drinks tool forever. Had to ask for water twice...then lemon three times. Appetizer never came to me. Drinks and appetizers given to wrong people. Food was either bland or overpowering. Could nt even taste the Snapper because the sauce was so overpowering. Disorganized.

We stopped by for lunch and really enjoyed it. We had the shrimp po boy and the fried oyster po boy, also the gumbo and étouffée. All were very tasty and fresh. The view is wonderful, and we are planning to go back in the evening so that we can enjoy the sunset on the lake as well as the... More

The food at Dead Fish is still terrible, the service is still slow, and it's still not all that clean. Please do gain some consistency. It's been inconsistent since you opened and it still is.

My wife and I were out on an afternoon ride on a warm sunny Sunday this labor day. We weren't planning on stopping but we are both glad we did. The view overlooking the lake was great, very relaxing. We ordered the blackened shrimp dinner and the shrimp was fantastic. The service was great as well. We would have stayed... More

The view is awesome, nobody can really argue that. The issue I had is I ordered the shrimp and catfish plate, for $15. Was deceptively up-charged for replacing the cole slaw with an actual side (was later told that cole slaw counted as a garnish, not a side. It's understandable, but I would have preferred to have been informed of... More

That time of year... moving the kids back in for college! Had breakfast/brunch here previously and they hit it out of the ballpark! Now we were trying dinner with family and friends, and once again Grade A! Our Server "Conner" was on top of it at every move, whether it be attending to our "kids" needs, making sure the adults...
