Enjoyable restaurant in Montgomery, AL. When it is cooler weather, it is nice to sit outside at this place. Good food and nice atmosphere.

Nice place to get some seafood. We had fish, shrimp and salads and all enjoyed their meals. It is downtown so easy to walk to events in town.

I have eaten there a couple of times. I lived in Mobile, where it originated . For some reason this is not the same, It isn't a bad or sub par, it just does not impress me. I would rather go to Red Lobster, or BoneFish.

We sort of found this place by accident while walking around the downtown area. Pleasant surprise. We ordered the "Oyster Combination" and found it very good. Found service to be a bit slow but the food is great. We sat outside and I think our waitress may have been a bit overwhelmed as she had tables inside as well.

I have already posted a bad review on here but was in Montgomery again and thought I would try the restaurant one more time. The service was much better this time, we had a young lady (Crystal) that was much better then the last time we were in just a few weeks earlier, Can't say the food was any better,... More

We were surprised with the relaxed atmosphere. It is just outside of the Renanisance Hotel, therefore I thought it would be more formal. We enjoyed the relaxing dining experience. The food was very good. The one thing was at times we could not connect with our server. Once she gets to your table she was really helpful. It was just... More

Food was great, service was fabulous. He had to move us to another table, since a drape kept coming loose and letting the cold air in. His name was Brandon.
