“Very nice place!”
Reviewed January 13, 2014

The food was good and the service was excellent! Our waitress, Donna, found out it was my birthday, so when she brought over our desserts to go she had a little cup of whipped cream with a candle and had the staff sing Happy Birthday to me. It was extremely nice and thoughtful and very much appreciated!

“Good Place To Chow Down”
Reviewed January 11, 2014

LARGE restaurant. Food was good, prices ok. Waitress seemed distracted but gave us good service overall. Could maybe sharpen her interpersonal skills a bit.

TVs everywhere were a blessing to some, kind of a distraction if ya want to schmooze a pretty wife.

All-in-all, a pretty good dinner at an ok price.

“Great value”
Reviewed January 4, 2014 via mobile

Good food, especially for the price. Beware though, they don't give you real butter.... Even when you order crab legs! They serve crab legs with melted margarine! Seafood definitely deserves real butter; it took a great experience to just good. Also, not the best service. Our waitress got our order wrong, didn't check in until late in the meal and seemed to be run down.

“Not so great”
Reviewed January 3, 2014

The food was less than average and the drinks were horrible. The service was okay, nothing special. The restaurant was clean and we were seated immediately even though we had a fairly large group. My husband and another family member were drinking water and after their glasses were refilled they found that they were drinking soapy water. The waitress apologized and brought new glasses but it was unsettling to say the least.

“Great fish quality, but spoilt by everything else”
Reviewed January 3, 2014

Very busy restaurant, so is clearly popular. We were given a table inside, although there are some tables on the terrace nicely overlooking the water. The food was served promptly and service was quite attentive, albeit brusque.

We were a party of five and had starters and entrees. Some of the dishes we rated as very good: e.g., coconut shrimp, crab cakes, fried shrimp. The fish served was clearly of an very good quality, but was in our opinion spoilt by flavouring and the sides, which were unexceptional, stodgy and in some cases, e.g. the fries, had added flavours which none of us liked at all. Salmon special was meaty, but not that tasty.

Our overall opinion was that we could get better meals elsewhere at the price.
