The reviewers who complain about the appearance of this place can best go to Appleby's if they want something modern and gaudy. We really enjoyed the look of the Mutineer as campy, kitschy layers of ways people decorated restaurants over the years. I mean, if you don't like a lifesized wood-carved pirate figure or alligator character by the pond, then go to McDonald's: the only things you will see there are made from safely recycled paper products. Assuming you do have a sense of humor and open yourself to the look of the Mutineer, the food is damn good and the servers were prompt and pleasant. My wife had a fine French onion soup appetizer and I devoured lobster bisque in a breadbowl. She ordered a half rack of ribs and thought they were full of meat and tasty; I had Grouper stuffed with a crabcake filling. I wanted to cry that I was too stuffed to finish all of it. Darn fine meal, in a place that's one-of-a-kind, especially in these bland days. One tip that escaped some reviewers who didn't apparently circle the building: there's a restaurant and there's a bar. If you want a restaurant experience and not a bar experience, you probably want to go into the restaurant and you probably don't want to go into the bar.
