Everybody's talking about this place so my husband and I decided to try it for date night. We went on a weeknight and there was no wait at all (bonus!). Our server was very personable and attentive.
We ordered the bacon deviled eggs for an appetizer and they were really good (although not as good as the ones served at Jackson's in Reston Town Center). My husband ordered the fried lobster and I ordered a fish dish. His lobster was amazing! We'd never heard of fried lobster before and were definitely intrigued. My dish was so-so. Not amazing, but not awful. For dessert he ordered the banana pudding which was also delicious, and I ordered the whoopie pie. It looked awesome but was too rich for my tastes. I ordered the frozen blueberry lemonade for a beverage and it was good.
Our bill came to $75! That seemed a bit pricey to me, particularly considering that the ambiance resembled a Red Lobster rather than a top-notch restaurant.
All in all, go. See what the hype is about. If you need help choosing a dish, go for the fried lobster because I'm pretty sure your dining partner won't share theirs!
