I took clients here at their choosing. The food was very good, and the service, while very serious, was very good. I had the shrimp wrap which was pretty good, but the lobster salad my colleague had looked better. one of my cleints had the fish and chip and raved about it.

Traditional buffet and cold buffet available. Very comfortable setting, a little on the pricey side but really makes a pleasant impression. Super service - Ryan, you rock!

We were in for a quick lunch and really enjoyed the lobster dishes. My colleague had gumbo and sushi. It was all good! This was a more upscale option in the Power & Light District, but the prices were what you would expect for fresh seafood selections. The service was friendly and attentive and the atmosphere was easy for conversation.

Business meeting, very enjoyable. They were out of our first wine choice, Franciscan and made no effort to remediate. We ordered a similar rated wine in a different grape which is OK but with high cost, menu should indicate when wine is out of stock. Bar management needs to step up. Food great with great presentation. Quiet atmosphere. Hostess very... More

My uncle, husband, and I went for a nice seafood dinner. Unfortunately, the food ranged from average to terrible. We started with clam chowder. $9 and without flavor. Then, we had our entrees. I had mahi mahi. I was so salty I ate none of it. The waiter said he'd let the chef know. Great. I'm out $34 and we'll... More

We visited for lunch with high expectations and the food and service both met our expectations. The server, whose name I wish I remembered, was spot on without being intrusive. When we expressed our dislike of the sweet biscuit & butter offering she immediately offers garlic toast and promptly served that as a tasty option. Many would have simply removed... More

Came here on our Saturday date night. Enjoyed the food. Steak and lobster tail was delicious and cooked to my liking. Our waitress was superb. She was attentive during our meal, occasionally stopping by to ask how the food was and if we needed anything. Always smiling, I could tell she took pride in her job and cared about our... More
