“Good Food / Friendly Staff”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

Made reservations for 10. Manager Don kept his promise for 730PM. Food was great. Rob, the server, was outstanding. Resturant is popular so make sure you make reservations, especially on the weekend. Nice waitinf area outside, or sit at the bar. Nice story of "the Perfect Storm" movie when you walk in the door. Make sure you read it. Great drinks and cold beer. Try this resturant.

“Love it!”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

Conveniently located on the Jefferson Davis Highway within an easy walk of the area hotels, it is generally busy but worth the wait. They do take reservations so if you are able to plan ahead I'd recommend it. The food is wonderful, the staff friendly and thoroughly professional. They take the time to make sure you have a wonderful experience and genuinely want you to enjoy your visit. The restaurant itself is very clean and well maintained.
