We stopped in here after shopping at the Christiana Mall. We had thought about visiting several times, but always ended up somewhere else for some reason. We had a gift card that someone gave us & decided to give it a try.
Once inside, we were seated at a booth by the restrooms & given menus. Our first impression was that the decor was comfortable, but the music was SUPER loud. We had asked to be seated away from the speakers, but the host insisted that ALL tables were near speakers.
Looking over the menu, we saw several items that sounded appetizing....ribs, fried chicken sliders, burgers, pulled pork sliders, coconut shrimp & FRESH fish selections (salmon, tilapia, mahi mahi). My husband decided to try the wood grilled salmon. One thing that was neat was that he got to choose his preparation for his fish....Pan-seared with mango butter sauce , Almond Crusted with a lemon butter sauce or Shrimp Saute with shrimp & lemon cream sauce. He chose the almond crusted salmon. His entree came with a cinnamon mashed sweet potatoes & fresh string beans. I was interested in the sliders & coconut shrimp. I asked our waitress which slider she recommended, the fried chicken or bbq pulled pork. She recommended the pulled pork, so I went with her recommendation. They are offered as an appetizer OR as part of a combo (with a salad or soup). I decided to get the combo with a house salad. They did not have Italian dressing, so I opted to try their house Tropical Vinaigrette. I would have preferred a more substantial side like mashed potatoes or fries. I asked about it & out waitress said I could order an additional side. She did not offer to allow me to make a substitution. Instead, we decided to add an order of the coconut shrimp appetizer.
Within about 10 minutes our coconut shrimp appetizer was out to us. There were 6 pretty decent sized shrimp on the platter. They were really good, but the citrus-mustard sauce was disgusting. We enjoyed them plain...delish! Within about another 5-10 minutes our entrees were out to us. My husband enjoyed his fish. He said it was moist, juicy--not overcooked. He really liked the almond crusting. He also enjoyed the cinnamon mashed sweet potatoes & fresh string beans. He said he got a really FRESH and tasty meal for a great price. I, however, was disappointed with the amount of food on my entree. There were ONLY TWO sliders on the combo (and the menu did not indicate how many you got). The tropical vinaigrette that came with my salad was not very good. I would not eat my salad, even though it looked delicious, since the dressing was terrible. Our waitress agreed to take my salad back and substitute french fries at no additional charge. This made me VERY happy. The fries were out quicky & were pretty good. The pulled pork was VERY good as was the bbq sauce served with it. I just wish there was more of it.
Overall, we had a good dining experience. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming. However, the music was TOO LOUD. If it were lower, then our experience would have been even better. The food overall was good, with the exception of the dipping sauces and salad dressing. Everything tasted fresh & not overly salty. Everything was served up warm. Our service was fast and for the most part friendly. Prices were not bad. I just wish that I got more than TWO small bbq pulled pork sliders on the combo. I should have ordered the appetizer, since our waitress told us that it came with FOUR sliders (also not indicated on the menu). I wish they just offered a regular sandwich sized bbq pulled pork OR fried chicken sandwich. These two items are only available as sliders.
I would recommend and would dine here again.
