First time at Wahoo Grill —wonderful meal & service. Nice menu with some different options. Loved the side dishes that were not the typical choices. Fried chicken & wahoo dinners were both tasty!!

I simply love this place during brunch on a warm day. The garden is lovely and the patio seating thoroughly enjoyable on warm night or over a boozy brunch. I’ve been here many, many times – popping in for a glass of wine and dessert,...More

The food was delicious and definitely not your run of the mill fare. Good place to take a date or a important business deal.

It would be wise to call and make reservations especially for dinner and on weekends. The Sunday Brunch is a foodie's dream. Plenty of breakfast and dinner items and fresh seafood and yummie deserts. Their bread pudding is phenomenal and I have never like it...More

I ate here for lunch with a group of friends. The setting is stunning, and the service was excellent. However, I was disappointed by their extremely limited vegetarian options. None of the lunch entrees were vegetarian. There was a single vegetarian sandwich.
