“Great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

The food was great but very large platters of food. You could easily share meals. We had the steak and shrimp platters, the coconut fried shrimp, and the chicken fried steak and all were very good. We went about noon on a Saturday and did not have trouble getting seated but when we came out after 1pm there was a long line waiting to be seated.

“Chain Restaurant”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

Like all chain restaurants, the food tastes like it would taste at any other chain .... the signs above the doors of these places are interchangeable ... could be Saltgrass or Texas Roadhouse or Landrys or Joe's Crabshack or whatever. It's just okay but too pricey for what you get. Whatever happened to freshly prepared food? We just got back from Italy where the little restaurants still make their own pasta and the ice cream tastes different at every gelato place because they have their own recipes. That's what I am looking for when I spend money in a restaurant.

“Fabulous Filet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

We were treated like royalty from the moment we came in the door on a super busy Saturday. We were given a table with a relaxing water front view. Christine, our waitress was very prompt and friendly with her service. Cocktails were suggested and served promptly in frosty, refreshing style. Our food was delicious, from the steamy soup and crisp salad through the Maudeen's Filet, so tasty and perfectly done, you could have cut it with a fork, such was the tenderness! We ordered the five layer chocolate cake to share for dessert. Such decadence!

The only negative was the LOUD conversation of the folks seated beside us. I have been told the noise levels are always overbearing when full of people. Definitely believe that now!

If you are looking for quiet, go during the middle of the week.

“Great restaurant with a wonderful view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013 via mobile

We arrived on a very busy Saturday afternoon and we were seated promptly and our sever quickly took our drink order. I ordered the Stuffed chicken with scampi rice side, my partners order a Texas Cheesesteak sandwich, Shrimp & Chicken Enbrochette and Fried mushrooms. The stuffed chicken was great as well as the Fried mushrooms and Shrimp & Chicken Enbrochette. The Texas cheesesteak was not that great. I also enjoyed a Texas Haze Margarita which was delicious.

“Always Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

Went here a few days ago. Took a while to get seated because no one was paying attention to the door. Beside the mix up the food was great. The steaks are always juicy with lots of flavor. I will be back.
