Great food and service!

I went on Friday night kinda of late. They were really busy. The gentleman in the parking area was very helpful. He got us parked. Once inside things went very well. We put our name on the list and it was a 45 minute wait. Lucky, we found a place at the bar and ended up just eating there. The... read more

Menu choices are boring. We showed up as soon as they opened and then sat for 15 minutes waiting for our server. I chose the Flounder in a Bag. It tasted like boiled fish with zero seasoning or flavor. We came here on a recommendation and were sorely disappointed.

This restaurant was suggested to us by one of the ladies at our hotel front desk. It's an unassuming building that looks like someone's home. The wait time was about 40 minutes in the hot sun. We thought about coming back closer to opening time but where advised against it by the first couple already waiting in line at 4:50... More

First, let me say that every morsel of food I ate here was delightful. I had the shrimp & grits and it was beyond delicious. I had a greek salad that was also very good. Our waiter was very attentive. I would definitely eat here again. IN OCTOBER OR NOVEMBER OR MARCH. NOT in the heat of July, when I... More

Great little gem of a restaurant that is worth the wait. They open for dinner at 5:30 and the line starts at 5! They are first come first serve but the food is fabulous. Best crab cakes I have ever had! Definitely worth scheduling your day around getting there in time for dinner just as they open. Going later you... More

This place was awesome! We ate here twice! The first time we went with friends and we ordered a ton of appetizers! The calamari was fantastic as well as the oysters rockafeller's. The second time we went it was conveniently located right next to the pirate cruise so we got a couple appetizers before the cruise and they came out... More
