“New Seafood Experience”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

It opened in August of 2011. We were one of the first customers. After some initial start up pains this has developed into a fine dining experience, I love the calimari and my wife loves the shrimp taco's. We try to sample something new each time we dine there. Prices are reasonable and drinks are good. The tables for 2 are a bit too small but a booth is just fine.

“not sure”
Reviewed August 25, 2012

Took a chance on this place as a lot of other restuarants had a long wait time (and hubby wanted seafood). I had the Blackend Talapia with Mango salsa (my mango salsa taste better) and mac'n chez for the side. Let's just say, IF we return it would only be for the mini muffins and a cocktail/beer at the bar. When the server brought out food, I looked at her and asked if this was for a child. The mac'n chez was literally 2 or 3 forks full. REALLY! She looked and agreed and brought out a smaller plate with the right size portion and the actual 3 cheeses it promised on the menu (orginal serving didn't have it). I am fully aware this is not a local mom/pop southern and/or soul food place so you gamble with the mac'n chez order. (Note/warning: don't order the mac'n chez) However, I do expect to receive what you advertise. The Strawberry Sangria was not that good. Our child had the catfish w/ mashed potato. He ate most the fish but hardly any of the MP. He did, however, eat the salad - 2 servings :-). Guess that tasted better. My hubby ordered shrimp steamer something - you peel and eat. The portion didn't go w/ the price.

“Red lobster is better!”
Reviewed June 28, 2012

Don't waste your time or money. The service was awful. You can't substitute anything for salad. The bread is terrible, some kind of jalapeño corn muffin. My husband never received his lobster and we were never offered drink refills. You get a lot more food for the money at Red Lobster!
