Stopped in here after shopping on the Riverfront. There was a 30 minute wait for a table (although there were several open). We decided to sit at the bar and order an appetizer and cocktail. Artichoke/Spinach dip was delicious. The bartender was very friendly and...provided excellent service. We ended up being seated quickly. Our waitress, however, was sullen and did not look happy to be there. It did take us awhile to figure out what we wanted to eat and she looked irritated when we asked for more time. Even so - the food we ordered was delicious. This review would have been "Very Good" or "Excellent" but for the experience with our server.More

Not impressed at all. The food was below average. I’m a fan of Shrimp and Grtis and just knew I was going to have some delicious shrimp and grits being in the south and all. NOT! Very disappointed. My husband had the fried seafood platter...and was not impressed. Not a place we’d go back to.More

I had the shrimp and grits - it wasn't bad, but I'm pretty sure you can do better. Just kinda blah. However, my husband had the BBQ bacon wrapped shrimp and loved it. He also had mac n cheese and said it was good also....Bar service is an efficient way to dine given the personnel shortage we experiened everywhere and our server was no exception.More

Not being very hungry, my wife and I got steamed shrimp, Caesar salad, shrimp and corn chowder, and shrimp and crab bisque. All were delicious, and the server was very attentive. We arrived around the normal dinner time in a Monday, and we were seated...quickly.More

Stopped in for lunch and decided to have shrimp. Started with the crab stuffed mushrooms and they were good. I then had the 1/2 pound of peel and eat shrimp and my husband had the fried shrimp dinner. We also got the shrimp cocktail. Cold,...steamed and fried shrimp were all really great. The sides were good but the shrimp was greatMore

The restaurant side had a 45 minute wait; but the bar side had none - same menu; just high top tables. Shrimp and grits are the best here; they also give you a free appetizer coupon that never expires when you are walking by; be...sure to use it. Bar side had very fast service.More

I believe when you leave a review you have the option of sending a note directly to the restaurant. If not you can always go to their web site and select "Contact us". Good luck, and I'm glad you enjoyed your meal!
