“Run to your local fish house.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2013

Seafood was all rubber...even the lobster! Salad not washed,forgot the crab legs,and got charged too much. The biscuits were warm and my trout was good...wished there was more rice,than just a couple of Tbsp's. Pizza was dry, and no one offered more wine. The server was nice and helpful, though. Going to the beach next time, for local seafood.

“Endless shrimp is endless after your first serving!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013 via mobile

The biscuits were great as usual. The endless shrimp ended after the first serving. Our server Jo never brought another, said she thought someone else had. My honey's Admiral's Feast was severely over cooked. He said it reminded him of a TV dinner. Thank goodness the company was great because the food wasn't!

“Ok food, poor service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2013

Food ok, environment good however, servers and bussers very inattentive. Had to ask 3 different times to bring condiments and forgotten. Plus server used right words but very rushed manner, speaking very fast and moving away from you before finishing her sentence. Original server never checked back to table until bringing check. Unfortunately, did not feel welcome and did not enjoy experience.

“Never again”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2013

I realize this is a chain Resturant ,but come on for $100.plus for 3 people and no drinks you should leave feeling good.The lobster tails were old or cooked to death not sure which, the hamburger was so dry it was hard to swallow,the shrimp they use for the shrimp and lobster tacos and the bruschetta tasted like they were left sitting in water way to long. The wait staff ok but not real happy to be their .

“yuck”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2013

They can't cook anything right. this use to be a great chain, but they have cut it to the bone. it is no longer a great place with good food. they have lost the touch of the name brand. I miss the old days when you got your food at the right price.
