Good with benefits

The food is very good, but the staff is not well organized. We tried to call to make a reservation but we were unable. We showed up at the restaurant and we had to wait 30 minutes to be seated. In those minutes nobody came to see if we wanted something to drink or to apologize for the wait and... read more

I've been here with friends and family and it has had mixed reviews. I don't usually seek out fried foods but I love fish with fins. The place was crowded and the atmosphere festive but I found the fish bland and service slower than I would have liked. Some friends rave about this place but I cannot. I suggest trying... More

Great place deep in Norfolk. Probably worth the area. Food was good, service average. Price kinda on the high end. Scallops were cooked perfect. Burger was great. Meat had great flavor. Noisy. Many drinks to choose from.

I would go back day after day for the Mac and Cheese!!! I do not eat seafood, but everyone I go with says it is good. The chicken fingers are amazing.

Food was pretty good but the staff/servers were nothing spectacular. The place was really busy because Monday nights offer all you can eat snow crab legs for $23.99. We'd probably go back again....I'd suggest trying it if you're in the mood for seafood : )

The place is sort of hidden in the cut, but don't worry. The food is great! You can't go wrong with whatever you order. I recommend the hushpuppies and mac 'n cheese as your side options. My only complaint is I wasn't impressed with our waitress. I asked about the specials and she informed me to turn around and read... More

Tried and true local's best pick...just see how steady the patrons are!! Fresh corn and vegetables...not to mention fresh catch of all kinds..guys love the oysters swear by them. Full bar..although really go there when we are hungry for something good, local and not fancy. All I can write w/o repeating...it is just that good!!

Dining alone, and being told there were no tables - although there were a couple of tables stayed empty the whole time I was there - I chose to sit at the bar. I stated I had no been there before and got a menu put in front of me with no explanation of any specials, recommendations at all. I... More

I know that this is a seafood restaurant but I went here with a friend who is pregnant and craving seafood. I wanted a salad and boy did I get the freshest best looking best tasting Cobb salad ever. We got our meals to go but the establishment looks much better on the inside than it does on the outside.

We went for the all-you-can-eat crab legs, which are only served on Monday nights. Each batch that was brought was always hot and steamy. They cracked up wonderfully and tasted great! We never had to ask for more, in fact e had to tell our wonderful waitress when to stop. We have never had that happen before :)
