“Disappointed”
Reviewed November 7, 2011

Went with 4 adults/1 child. The wait was normal for Friday night. The service was very poor. The waitress had no personality and never explained anything to us. She kept reaching over in front of us and disappeared on several occasions. Had a glass of wine and the glass was only 1/4 full when we asked she said it was the tasters size. But I got charged 5.99 for it. When I asked about the charge they brought out another 1/4 full glass. The shrimp dip was very good, but not nearly enough chips. There is an "endless salad" but had to ask 3x's for the second go round. The salad comes already with a dressing which the server never told us.They have small muffins (that are very hot in taste, not suitable for a child) in a very small can and never refilled it. Again had to ask for another round of them. None of the entrees were anything exciting for the price. The menu has alot of tilapia on it. With not alot of other fish dishes. The serving of fries that comes with the entree was very small. In all very disappointed as we do need a good fish place in the area.

“Fast, Fun and Enjoyable!”
Reviewed October 2, 2011

New restaurant where both my family and partner live, so my partner and I wanted to try it out being how we're such big seafood fans. This place just opened and they had a 30+ minute wait for two people... that was either a good or bad sign. They quoted us 30 minutes but were sat within 15 *instant like*. Our waitress was extremely friendly but not overly obsessive attentive (which I cant stand). She asked if this was our first time and when we said yes she instantly gave us the "411" which was helpful. She made some great recommendations. Also the alcoholic drink selection is huge and CHEAP. Went perfect with the meal. Menu was large but not multiple pages. Great, wide variety for seafood lovers and "land lubbers" alike.
Food was fantastic for a chain restaurant, could also tell it was fresh. At least four different servers pitched in and grabbed our empty plates, refilled our drinks and assisted our waitress whenever she was busy with other tables. You could tell there was some great teamwork involved as I also observed her helping other waiters as well.
Bottom line, this place is the exact mix of Red Lobster and Joe's Crab Shack, but really leaves out the negatives of each and only holds on to the positives. It's not a loud party atmosphere like Joes but not boring like Red Lobster. Awesome service like Red Lobster but not stuck up.
Really great place, will be back with family next time!
