Excellent crab burger

Good food, friendly staff, great beer selection, reasonable prices. Watch out for the "gator" by the parking lot. A bit noisy.

Beautiful building, the shrimp was fresh and very good but As a whole the meal was pretty bland. Blackened swordfish was mild and tasty. Pastas were very very bland. For the cost, I would recommend looking for a different restaurant.

This place has an unexpectedly upscale decor but it is one big room with high ceilings, many tvs and loud music so it is very noisy to start with. It is a sport bar after all? Make a reservation if you do not want to sit at the bar during peak times on Friday and Saturday evenings. They really do... More

I cannot imagine what anyone wouldn't like about this restaurant. We are only here for a couple of weeks, but have eaten here 5 times. Amazing salmon burger, one of the best chicken fried steaks ever, and the best fried cod ever (think of a thick cod steak with the perfect crust cooked to perfection). Fried cod on Fridays is...

Food very overpriced. Atmosphere not as friendly as expected. Food was average, caters more to burger lovers it seems. Desserts were good.

Stopped by for a business lunch mid week. They were busy and short staffed. Took a while to take or order and receive our meal. The shrimp platter was great. Nice big gulf shrimp. Good flavor and generous portions. I even liked the cole slaw which I am particular about.

We arrived at the restaurant with high hopes for a great meal. The outside is cool and there was a gator in the water to greet you. The ambiance was nice. Service is slow. My new potatoes were raw and my veggies slathered with olive oil and ice cold. Bummer. We ordered oysters Rockefeller and got something with cold spinach... More
