This was a great neighborhood find, further out from the beach, but still walking distance. They had a good nightly menu, and crab cakes were delicious. Disappointed we could visit again during our stay, as there were more things we wanted to try on the...More

We stopped in for a light meal and drinks on, Saturday, Feb. 28. Caught a great happy hour. Decided on our appetisers as opposed to an entree. K(C)atherine was personable and helpful. The Oysters Rockefeller were excellent, the Seared Scallops good but few, the Coconut...More

First the positives. The service was very good. The waiter was attentive and the owner came and chatted. The food (Mahi and Scallops) both seemed fresh and were well prepared. Now for the criticism. 1. They need to move their Smoking Area away from their...More

Hard time deciding what to order. Everything looked worthwhile! Settled on the chicken nachos, calamari, and soup of the day. Big WOW for the nachos! Excellant. Calamari was just o.k. and the clam chowder would have been better if the Old Bay seasoning had been...More

We were using Yelp! to look for local seafood and happened upon this gem. The name of the restaurant is actually 'Tempt.' When we arrived, the modern atmosphere had us a bit concerned that coming with a 3 month old and a 2.5 year old...More

We like Tayst as a nice, low key alternative to the higher priced Resturants in the area. There food is pretty good and very reasonably priced. It has a locals atmosphere with a pretty active bar.
