We ate here twice during our most recent Rosemary Beach trip. It is definitely better than the former tenant, but has a lot of room for further improvement.
Our first visit as a party of five was great. The food was good. I’m a bit of a sushi snob and this is pretty average, but better than I expected and good enough that we went back. We were served promptly. The beer was cold. We had braved a deluge to get there, and the place was almost empty. I would have rated this visit as four stars.
Two days later, we arrived with a larger crowd for a late lunch (2:00). The place was full. This time, service was terrible for us and for all of the table within eye or ear shot of ours. Our server was so far into the weeds that she was pretty useless. The food took forever. We got one plate and then nothing for more than 30 minutes. When we asked about it, we were told that everything would be served as it was prepared. OK, fine, but then seven of the other plates arrived all at once. It was another 15 minutes for the last plate. On this visit, the look and quality of the rolls were different from plate to plate. It was pretty clear that someone “new” or “learning” was doing some of the preparation. We understand that servers can be overwhelmed, that staffing at the beach can be complicated and that things can happen to cause delays. Frankly, what really bothered us was that the two clearly managerial people knew that there was a problem, and they never asked how our meal was, checked on us, or even acknowledged our existences. Even more, the appeared to be actively ignoring us. We ran into guests from two adjacent tables later in the day, and we all agreed that better service and a serious attitude adjustment are in order. I would have rated this visit as one star.
We’ll be back at Rosemary Beach at the end of the month, but we won’t be eating sushi unless and until we see some consistent really excellent reviews.
One final note, they restaurant serves only wine and beer. They do not have a full bar.
