“Do try the pompano shrimp”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

Selected a salad and pompano shrimp appetizer. Was just enough, and the shrimp, what a taste. Shrimp wrapped in bacon with a wonderful sauce drizzled on them. Can't wait to have more on our next trip.

“Just OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

The restaurant's hostess were some of the most unfriendly individuals we meet while in Panama City. The menu was extensive and captured our attention. The tempura Lobster appetizer was tremendous. The Filet was a nice size and was cooked perfectly although the other steak that was ordered was over seasoned and left a lot to be desired. The bacon wrapped scallops were slightly over cooked. The problem here was the service. With the prices this restaurant demanded I expect quality service which we did not get. Unfortunately the server was over extended. She had a table of 30, one of 4, and ours with 5. All with no help. She did not bring us butter or sour cream for our baked potatoes, our drinks were not refilled, and we were never asked how things were. An expensive dinner with poor service.

“Ok Food and Service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

Was actually trying to eat across the street but wait times were long. No wait time here. Hmmm. Waitress was really nice and knowledgeable. We tried the Grilled Mahi Mahi, Seafood platter, Shrimp Scampi, and Grilled Shrimp with mashed potatoes. Everyone was well pleased with their food. Disappointed with Seafood Platter. I got it fried. Not very big like I have had at other restaurants. What? No Oysters? That's a first. That would be my only complaint. Nice atmosphere. Will probably try some other place next time. Small portions, especially a seafood platter for $24? Nah...I will pass on them next time.
