“Decent food, Nothin' Special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Ate Lunch here today. They have a specials menu and I picked the Tuna with Teryaki (sp?) and Ginger sauce ($11). It was OK but nothing to shout about. Nice big chunk of meat. Decent Sweet Potato fries which the server was nice enough to substitute for the regular fries. She was pretty decent, and attentive especially dealing with a group of 7 old men who were constantly talking.

“Eat Here & Throw Your Money Away!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

Wow, where do I begin, I wish I had read these reviews before going but, was invited by friends and went. We had a group of ten people and they assigned the worst server to handle our group. (they must have drawn straws and we got the loser) Food was either Way over or under cooked, service was painfully slow, most requested items (sauces, drinks, refills etc) arrived too late to use. Prices are way over for what you receive, our server placed our used plates on a tray that contained plates of food for another table! Gross. I find it strange that Captain D's (and just about every other seafood place got a better rating than this place.

“Nasty!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

The worst Seafood My husband and I have ever eaten. First she brings out Hush Puppies and says "Becareful these are addicting". Really?? you needed a saw to cut them they were so over cooked, hard as a ROCK! Then we ordered Stuffed Mushrooms, they were cold when she brought them out but yet the mushrooms looked like they had been over microwaved. Finally the main course, I do belive the crap cakes were half raw ontop of being COLD, the cole slaw was soured. They sure do not know how to make Sweet Tea either, they have sugar water.

“Still serving great food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

Group of 8, seated and attended to promptly and efficient. Great menu and specials, difficult to pick only one. Meals arrived as ordered and all were very good! Everyone enjoyed their meal, not easy to get 8 out of 8 right!

Had steak with crab imperial. Potato over cooked, steak was tough, but crab imperial was good. Stick with seafood.
