We met family here on a Friday night. Had a drink and appetizer at the bar while waiting. The bartenders were friendly and recommended the steamed shrimp for the app. They were excellent. The set up of the house is really neat and cozy. I would visit again for sure.

We showed up at the door without reservation on a Friday evening, around 6:30, and the place was almost full. Calling ahead would be a good idea during beach season. They had many dishes that looked quite interesting that it took some serious thinking to pick what I wanted. And this sucker landed on the salmon salad in the end... More

Was looking for a local restaurant close to the resort to have a birthday dinner with a cousin and her boyfriend. So concierge recommended this place. I loved the cottage venue and my order of tilapia au gratin with crab was delicious. They also served a very nice bread with herbs and flavored red potatoes.

This was our second time visiting this restaurant. We got there right when it opened and there was a long line to get in! We were seated and ordered the crab nachos and a fish wrap. Both items were very reasonably priced at about 10 bucks each. The quality of these items far surpassed other food anywhere else on the... More

The food is out of this world, I love the décor in the place, it used to be a old house that is now a restaurant. Its small and quant and you don't feel crowded like you do at most places. The staff is amazing, they know the menu and are very knowledgeable.

Thank goodness we arrived at this restaurant when it first opened! This place is very popular (and deservedly so) and the wait can be long. We got there at 5:30 and were seated right away. We ordered 4 appetizers and an entree and everything was absolutely delicious! We had the tuna poke (out of this world), she-crab soup (terrific), Oysters... More

This restaurant was recommended by Jonathon who works at The Courtyard Marriott. My fiancé ordered the stuffed flounder beautifully steamed in a bag. He loved it. I had scallops and rice that was good but a little too much salt for me. We both had the most delicious cream of crab soup we have ever had and we are from... More

We ate dinner here during our night at the beach. We ordered the crab dip, crab soup, salad, and entrees tuna with rice and stuffed flounder with potatoes. It was all good but the crab soup was some of the best I have ever had! The flounder was cooked in a bag and was good but I didn't really like... More

Our waitress was informed of a food allergy, and yet our food came to us with the allergen in the food. If we had not done our research we would have never flagged it and would've ended up in the hospital that night. In addition my grouper was not sufficiently cooked and therefore not completely edible and the scallops were... More
