“Ambiance, views and great food”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

The hour long wait for our table was well worth it. Food was delist and the views were fantastic. The only disappointment was, that while waiting for our table, we went up to the bar and asked for Piña Colada and the bartender said that they were out of the ready made stuff to make it.

“Worth every penny!”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

One of the best seafood places I have ever eaten at. First there is the view, which I might add is spectacular. Second the atmosphere is terrific, and service is great. But the best part is definitely the food. Everything is just as you would hope. The oysters and fried oysters are fantastic, and the entrees are amazing. My favorite is the Seafood Ambrosia. Love it!

“Food disappointing but service and ambiance wonderful”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

We had lunch on a holiday Friday. The restaurant was busy but we called ahead and they were very accommodating. They gave us a beautiful table and were attentive and smiling. The only problem was that the food was just average. I had a lobster roll for $22 and found the lobster somewhat dry with a plain hamburger bun as the roll. The white bean and seafood chili appetizer was good but not great. Overall, the food did not live up to the venue.

“Great Food! But don't go when a Celebrity is there!”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

We have gone for 5 years in a row the food is out of this world, however today I was a bit disappointed the entire place was turned upside down because Taylor Swift was there! They ran out of some of the foods on their menu, it took a while to get another soda, and our reservation we had for upstairs was cancelled because Taylor had a private party. I understand things occur, but 2 manager came over, acted like we were dumb and we did not know what was going on and that Taylor was there, then no discount on the bill nothing at all, and we waited all year to go because we love the place so much! Food is Awesome without a doubt, but a bit disappointed on how they handled things while a celeb was there and that they were unprepared to serve certain things on the menu and ran out. We will still go again however no discount on our bill or anything we were a bit shocked, celebrity's also get put in front of others which is fine no problem but be prepared.
