“My first time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

It will probably be my last, dang it was too high priced just for a hamburger. It was just somewhere that the kids wanted to go because of the name.

“Impressed; would go back”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013 via mobile

Seating was prompt for how busy they were. Didn't wait long at all for a table. I will say the check in process was a little confusing, they shuffle you back and forth between two hostess stations, but I guess it works for them. Our server was great, we were on the patio and it was crowded but she was on top of things the whole visit. Quality and quantity of the app and entrees were all great, with the exception of one of the combos. It was a pick two (shrimp and scallops) with a side. What I got did not live up to what the dish cost. A few tiny shrimp and some measly scallops on top of a giant bed of mushy vegetables. There were more veggies and side item than actual seafood. That's the only complaint I have. Overall we enjoyed our visit and would go back again.

“below average”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

Staff was not friendly. No smiles from anyone and the server acted as if we were an inconvenience. The food was ok. I ordered the stuffed shrimp and sent it back because it was not stuffed. It was wrapped in uncooked bacon and looked horrible. Drinks were out after the appetizer. Who knew water could take so long to get. Refills were few and far between and one drink that was refilled was taken and never returned. No atmosphere....what happened to the music and lively entertainment. I spent around $100 on a disappointment. I also agree with the previous comment....where is Fred?

“Slim selection of seafood, but cooked well”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

Nice place to hang out with friends, nice nautical decor. Seasonal employees, but they do give friendly service that is timely. Food is grilled or fried, and was probably previously frozen. All the standard drinks, alcoholic or otherwise, nothing creative.

“good seafood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

Nice place. The food was good and cooked to perfection. A bit pricy but worth it. You get to listen to live music while you eat. This time of year it tends to bet busy toward night fall so go early and enjoy your meal and music without a long wait
