“Excellent!!”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

After reading some of the reviews I had concerns when a friend suggested we meet at the Old Calypso for a late lunch. Should not have worried....Complementary valet parking. Pleasant greeting. Classy island decor. Waterfront dining. Excellent server (Kalli). Oh yeh! And great food! They even pleasantly accomodated us when we had an unexpected, but welcomed, additional couple join our party increasing us from six to eight. We'll be back.

“The manager needs to be fired.”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

After waiting an hour for a table, are you supposed to leave a restaurant crying and hungry? If so this is your place!! My family has been going to Old Calypso for 9 years, despite the inconsistent service because we love the food. The last time we were there, we were told there would be a 20 minute wait for a table. After waiting about an hour, a party came in with no reservation and the manager Nick took them right away. When the hostess tried to tell him we were next he yelled at her. When we questioned him, he waved his hand at us and told us, "I don't have time for you. Have a nice day. Good Bye." We contacted the corporate office but got not response. Not that I want anything from them. Nothing would get me to walk through their doors as long as that man is still working there.

“Dissapointed”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

I was with the group from Overbrook HS and I was the person that heard the manager make his rude comments to the waiter to get us out of there that 1 1/2 hours was long enough. He was also very rude to one of our party and yelled like an idiot that she was a b..ch and would be banned from the restaurant. Yet she was very polite with him. He does not belong in this position. We will never go back to this place.

“Trine dining on a rainy night”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

While visiting family in Florida we decided to try the Old Calypso. When we made the reservation we were advised that the outside deck was closed due to a private party but settled for an inside table. When we got there we were told that the party had moved inside because of the rain but we could sit there if we wanted to. It is covered so we decided to take them up on the offer and we are glad we did. The inside of the restaurant was very noisy due to several parties going on but the deck was peaceful. It was the perfect place to enjoy a delicious meal from the dinner salad with mango dressing to the well prepared entrees. The seared tuna was perfectly cooked, the snapper was amazing and the soft shell crabs were great. The service was attentive even though the inside appeared to be pretty full. We were all very pleased with our experience at Old Calypso.
