Grouper & shrimp granchio were outstanding. I had oysters Rockefeller which was very good. We had a table outside, which added to the ambience. We just missed the live entertainment, so can’t comment on that. Wait staff were personable & helpful

Stopped in last minute. Two girls at hostess station were less than enthusiastic. Server attended to us promptly and drinks came quickly. Food was okay at best. There are better dining options in the area.

Went for lunch today. No crowds due to rain and spring breakers and snowbirds are mostly back north. Our service was good but the food was not. Haddock and the coleslaw had bad taste like they were both past expiation dates. Friend fries were good....More
