We were there early on a Monday evening, so it was a bit quiet. The staff were all pleasant and our server was great and very helpful. They start you off with some very nice cornbread. We had the mussel appetizer was really good with a delicious broth. For mains we had the rainbow trout and the crabcakes. Both were... More

This restaurant has a great vibe. Fish is very fresh. Black grouper with a side of grits was prepared perfectly. The grits were some of the best I have every had. We started with pimento cheese fritters .Very tasty. We sat at the bar and Erica served us. She is fabulous. She should have her own restaurant. This seems to... More

The food was really good and we had nice service....the only drawback was the parking. Oysters were good and the NY Strip steak was well prepared.

Came hereast Saturday night for my niece's birthday party dinner. They were able to accommodate us in a large room. Starters were their pimento fritters which were served with toast. (Yummy) and I had the fried catfish with fries.

Ate here a few years ago when this neighborhood place first opened. I was unimpressed. Recently a friend told me it was excellent so we tried it again. Mediocre at best. Had the Coastal Cod which was described as being served with remoulade. It arrived looking blackened with no remoulade. My query to the waitress led to the answer that... More

We ate here last weekend for our 12th anniversary. We had reservations somewhere else and at the last minute changed our minds after seeing the pics on Yelp. Parking is very hard to find in this neighborhood. The place was crowded, that is not saying a lot because it is a small restaurant. The hostess told us it would be... More

Small restaurant delivers intimate feeling with casual atmosphere. Wait staff knows menu and we were glad we followed their recommendations. Had delicious oyster appetizer and monk fish main course.

We ate here on Thursday, 6/4 at about 8:30. I ordered the Monkfish, and they served me a bad piece of fish. I smelled it as soon as it hit the table. I didn't say anything. I didn't want to appear like I was misinformed on how this fish is supposed to be prepared. It's not like I ordered it... More
