“Great Change!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

Good quantity of food and a nice change from shrimp and grits! Veggies were not overcooked and they have Sushi. I am not a sushi fan but my friends said it was wonderful!

“Depends on who cooks for you...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

We have been here on several occasions as we are in Southport on a regular basis. I think they are ok. It seems like the cooks aren't really consistent. Last time we went our cook did a great job with the seasoning of the food however, forgot to cook and serve the appetizers. I believe he was new.

We have also been when the wait staff left a lot to be desired. Seemed like they decided to take their lunch HOUR during our service.

I think this place could be really good with some consistently seasoned food and a wait staff that cared.
