“Very Average Food and Less Then Average Service”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

This chain prices themselves like Joe's Stone Crab but the food quality is average at best. We had ten people at our table with a variety of menu items selected. No one had anything they were impressed with enough to mention here. Service was terrible. You order a beverage or something from one of the servers, it would show up 10-15 mins later and be given to someone else at the table. My meal was served luke-warm. I was told other locations of this chain are great; doubt I will ever try another location to find out.

“Great Food!”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

Location is great. Service was good but could have been better. I would suggest sitting on a table not on the couch as it got a little noisy from the people sitting next to us.

Food was great though! Clam chowder was really good. Seafood mixed grill was great. The shrimp & scampi was great. Really great quality food. Cheesecake was really good too. I wanted the caramel chocolate cake but it is made for two people so this is on my want list for next time.

“Overpriced and average food”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Pleasant enough location and ambience although very quiet when we were there on a Wednesday night in January. Food was average but $350 for 3 was top end for what we got.

“Just OK, not great.”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

The food was good and no one seemed to have any complaints about it. The objections at our table of 6 was the way we were served. We did not know whether it was an inexperienced waiter, a bad kitchen or something else. Our appetizers came out at the same time as 2 of our entrees. They had to take those two back and keep them warm until everything else was ready. We then waited another 30 minutes before the remainder of our entrees were ready and then all were served but the first two became tough since they were held so long. It just seemed like a very disorganized kitchen or wait staff, but either one will force us to dine elsewhere the next time.
