I had the shrimp po'boy and it was lacking on shrimp making it average. Service was slow with very few people in the restaurant so I'd hate to see it on a busy night. Chocolate cake was good!

Staff are pleasant but the huge problem is that whatever they use to clean the table tops stinks of chlorine or bleach and hurts your nose. We walked out Stupid that a... More

Had lunch on a Saturday afternoon during our recent visit to AMI. My wife had the lobster nachos and I had the lobster roll. Both were very good! The atmosphere was laid back and kinda of dated, but to me this added to the charm of the place. Kinda pricey, but nothing outrageous compared to other similar eateries in the... More

First they seated us next to the drinks station and we asked to move because I didn't want to hear the ice clatter or server chatter. Unfortunately our new table was with a new employee... More

My wife and I had dinner there one night. I had there special, grouper in a bag, the bag supposedly retains the juices.
