Hostess walked us to the table, casually tossed the menus on the table as she turned to walk away saying enjoy your dinner. No smile, no chit chat, almost robotic. I figured she had boyfriend trouble. Anyone with teen daughters know this attitude. Our waitress was friendly, but it took a little humor to open her up. We ordered the... More

Holiday week. College town. Help was missing. Long wait for table. Even longer wait for food. About 3 1/2 hours total. But don't let that stop you from going there. That food was awesome. Because of everyone ordering the crayfish boil before us, it was soold out when our order was placed. So it was time for the king crab... More

We ate there yesterday afternoon and it was very disappointing to say the least. My teenage son only ate 2 bites of his dinner which was the red gravy and shrimp. My husband, daughter and I ate some of our dinners, but they were not very good. We would have been so much better off at a restaurant down the... More

I remembered this place from my trip to Florida last year. Went back because it was so good! They were out of the Mahi Mahi so I had the Grouper Gillan again. It was perfectly done topped with a crawfish sauce over rice. Cayla the bartender provided friendly and attentive service to make my solo visit more enjoyable. It was... More

6:00 dinner, seated fairly quickly even though the parking lot was very full. Ordered the boom boom shrimp which were very good. Ordered the seafood gumbo which was a total waste of 6.99. The shrimp were very small and appeared to be the only seafood in there ( there was also chicken and sausage in it ) we ordered the... More

I went for the seafood grill and to my surprise they don't offer a single menu item that is grilled! Everything is either fried boiled or steamed. Very disappointed. Better off going to the other seafood chain for grilled items.

We had the Crawfish Poboy. I've never seen so much crawfish on a poboy in my life. It was delicious. The service was fast and friendly. I'd definitely go back again.

Whenever we visit Gainesville, we make a trip to Wahoo! Great selection of fish and sides! Happy hour from 4-7 pm. Dinner on a Saturday night with live music. Outside seating. Always fun!

Coffee brewing, but NO cream. Fish undercooked...no flavor...hushpuppies burnt but raw inside. Catfish...muddy taste, very noisy...a nearby table so loud people requested to be relocated. Mashed potatoes...no flavor. First time I've ever given such a bad review. Chef should be replaced. Will never go back.

After a number of Doctor's appointment - one of them three hours long - we were more than ready for a drink and a nice meal. Stopped in here as we had gift cards and have wanted to visit for some time. Despite a crowd we were seated almost immediately outside. Our drink - more than ready for one -... More
