“Great location, yummy food, friendly service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014

Try their specialty cocktail- the colada rita- It was delicious! Husband had a cuban and loved it, both kids enjoyed their dinners- fish and a corn dog. I had the swordfish that was very fresh and yummy! Sat outside on the patio looking at all of the boats. Really a neat complex- this is our second time to the area and had no idea it was there. Can't wait to go back!
Only bad thing was that although the service was very friendly, it took a while to get our adult beverages. He blamed it on the bartender, but it was not that busy.

“Expected more”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014 via mobile

Great atmosphere, great staff, good service, so I expected great food too. It was not very good. The waitress raved about the gumbo but the flavor was bland a pasty, my fried shrimp were not crisp bug soggy, the special crab salad was a joke. It was served in a small martini style glass and very small, we all had a good laugh and shared our plates with him. Really expected better food from a nice place like this. Won't go back.

Very friendly service. The food was delicious! I will go back every time I visit. We sat outside and they had live music. Perfect dinner date!

“Good not great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2014

Based on a great Tripadvisor rating, we tried Compleat Angler tonight. Very cool complex. Many restaurants around here. Walked in and was told 20 minute wait. OK. There was 6 of us, there was an open table just as you walked in, I asked and was told that it was for another party. OK. We went to the other side bar and got drinks and then got beeped. We were then seated at that same table??? Server Jeremy was fantastic-Thank you. He suggested my shrimp dish and it was great. Others in our group did not fair as well, food was good, not great. Prices were not bad.
