Food was very flavorful. Both entrees were delightful! The staff was busy yet friendly. Little pricey but food was worth the price and that is what matters. You should def give a try

I think most people are starting to get it right with their reviews as the food here is just average... It has a great setting and atmosphere with live entertainment but that doesnt cover the fact that the food is just so so... I started with some sushi and it was fair at best.. Myself and Mother-in-law had poboys and they were good but just average nothing fancy about fried shrimp and crawfish tails here... We did try the Fire Cracker Shrimp that evevrybody talks about.... They were good but if you have ever had the real thing (Bang Bang Shrimp from Bonefish) you will be disappointed.... Mother said the crab cakes were decent. Dad had the gumbo and thought it was good... If you are ok with paying top dollar for average seafood this is the place for you... If you perfer better prices and food go to King Neptunes for seafood or Flippers for steaks and burgers...

We really enjoyed sitting on the patio. We thought the service was fine and really enjoyed the grilled shrimp. Nice selection of beer and wines.

My family decided to eat here because it didn't look to busy, and we had 6 of us. We got seated right away. Every worker was very nice and friendly and our server was excellent and very knowledgeable about the food. The blackened grouper was ok. I was expecting more flavor for the price. My daughters both got the grilled shrimp, and they did not like the tomatoey sauce that it was in. They would have preferred just seasoned grilled shrimp. The banana fritters and the key lime pie were great though! So all in all, the food was ok, not bad, but not great. It was a nice place though.
