“Very good food, great atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2014 via mobile

We enjoy coming here for seafood with a twist. The food is always very good. If you go early it's not quite as crowded, but the one thing I don't care for is sometimes the music is a little loud. It's a great place to get a spin on traditional seafood entrees and enjoy time with friends.

“Good seafood - nice break from "southern" cooking!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2014

Visiting Albany gives many opportunities for good "southern" cooking, but good seafood (that isn't fried) is another story. This trendy spot has a good atmosphere, friendly service, and well prepared and presented food. The seafood seems fresh and the preparation is creative.

“Over priced and ill prepared.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2014

First I will start with the service for our party of four, the waitress we had did not come to our table for twelve minutes. The food we ordered was ill prepared my wife's fish was over cooked on one side and raw on the other. All four of us ordered cheese grits as a side dish. Grits are the simplest food to cook since oatmeal yet it was underdone and had hard bits in it and the cheese was rarely noticeable. Both of my friend's entrees were over done. Getting the waitress's attention was difficult and she refused to get the manager. We could not get refills on our drinks and the seating was uncomfortable. It took over fifteen minutes to get our check and I had to be quite assertive to get it then.

“Good food and atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2013

We went there on Tuesday night and the place was packed. We were able to find a seat at the bar or we would have had a 45 minute wait. We had oysters which were good. We shared a fish dish that was fine. I had the creamed spinach which was very good and served in a little glass. The wine was nice and the whole experience was fun. The service was good despite them being slammed. I would go back.

“Good value seafood with great atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2013

Recommended to visit here whilst staying in Albany, we were glad we did. Quiet early on, the atmosphere built up as the evening got going. Service was good, slowed down a bit as things got busier but still acceptable, shrimp good value and well cooked. Will return.
