Our group of 4 had good meals here. The fried grouper sandwich, shrimp po boy and salad with grilled grouper were all very tasty. Unfortunately, service was slow because there were only 2 waitresses who were also having to seat guests and bartend. They were...as efficient as they could possibly be but needed help. A few guests left after waiting too long to be seated.More

I have had take out service from here several times but no ore. You need to make sure you have what you ordered. They gave me tater tots when I ordered fries secondly the portions of the sides are small. I understand it's difficult to...get servers now but that's no excuse for the attitude you get from the manager.More

The grouper was cooked perfectly. They worked very well with my allergies, and even cleaned the grill to avoid cross contamination. Hubby said the crab cake was very good.

We got there early to have an early dinner. (round 5:15) it was our waitresses third day and she was trying to hold it all together. Food was average, the place filled up fast. Took many attempts to get ketchup, drink refills etc. I finally...had to ask someone else for my bill and went inside to pay. ( We had clearly been done for quite a while and standing up waiting for the bill) downside to being outside was the stray cats...More

We had burgers and a fish n chips plate. One burger was over cooked (wanted medium); fries were a bit different. The soft homemade fried chips were tasty. The prices are reasonable. $9 for a basic burger and then $.50 per topping Tap beer is...$5 for a tall glass. Matt was a great server. Lots of cats roaming the outdoor patio. Fun. We are cat people.More

We came here today to have lunch and watch a March Madness game at the bar. Unfortunately the poor barkeep, Jennifer, was working all alone and running frantically to try to keep customers content. My wife and I were very impressed by her ability to...‘keep it together’ and not totally lose her ‘stuff’; she was also worried about the waitress who hadn’t shown up for work. She apologized to everyone who came into the place and most sat outside... The chef also kept his cool and turned out order after order and Jennifer delivered each order like she was a contestant on Survivor! We ended up having a great lunch and I complimented the Chef on the excellent po-boy oysters he prepared to perfection! We gave Jennifer a generous tip for her ‘courage under fire’! We will come back!More

We are in love with this spot ! We were very pleased with Covid-19 precautions. Outdoor seating is delightful and we can't wait to see the huge fire pit blazing. We were all thrilled with our meals, Chef was very willing to grill oysters rather...than fryng. The new manager is exceptional, very personable and welcoming !More

Went there for what we were told, the best wings in town. Well I guess we hit it at a bad time. Ordered beers, 10 mins later placed order for pretzels and two dozen wings. While waiting outside we saw about 4 cats under tables....We have a cat so it wasnt that bad, but then the cats jumped up on the tables of people who just left, and started eating the leftovers. Now that ain't cool, and I think is probably against health codes. Nobody who work there seem t care. Well after that about 15 mins.waiter came out and said they were out of pretzels. Ok well just have wings, 10 mins later he came out and said they were bbn out of wings. But they had boneless wings, they aren't wings if they dont havethe bone wth. Paid for our beers then went to visits next store and enjoyed a great meal. Will never return to this place and cant recommend anyone does either. Terrible serviceMore
