“OVER RATEDD”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

the place is very old and dirty, it has a mold smell, the service is just okay. the steak is full of FAT and no one their can cook. the food is very poor and over rated if you sit outside the bugs will overwhelm you would be better off going somrwhere else for sea food. Very expensive for what it is. ive been there twice and will not go back.

“Best Seafood in TRI”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012 via mobile

This restuarant consistently has good food and service. Eating on the porch with the doors open and watching the river on a warm December day was an outstanding experience.

Only improvement I would suggest would be to serve hush puppies instead on the cornbread "fish".

“Seafood place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

Kingsport native. Great ambiance. River is beautiful. Food tastes good but they're pretty skimpy. Can be pricy for the portions. There is room for improvement but if your dying for some seafood it will satisfy you.

“Good food, great service and a view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

We dined in a large group on the patio beside the river. The waitress was quick and funny and so efficient. The coconut shrimp appetizer was large and so yummy. The seafood was fresh, cooked to perfection and beautifully presented. A terrific night!

“Lovely fresh fish prepared without inspiration”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

We had grilled swordfish and grilled mahi mahi. The quality of the fish was good, ample portion and appropriately cooked. I side is offered, with few healthy choices broccoli being an exception.
There is a choice of "preparation" dressing for example, ginger teriyaki. Disappointingly these dressings are supplied on the side in a small plastic cup and sets the scene for the class of restaurant, 'Lovely fresh fish prepared without inspiration' .
It's probably the only restaurant in that area that offers a good selection of fresh fish so it appears to be popular. This restaurant is also set on a river front so has ambiance.
Overall we were disappointed and will not revisit
