“Excellent From Start to Finish”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2014

Dana was our waitress and she answered every question we had about the menu and very attentive to our needs. We ordered a variety of seafood and pasta dishes and everyone was excellent. The side salads are the best I've ever had for the $. The crab cakes are very good for the $ but not Maryland style, the grilled shrimp were the best I've had in ages and my husband really enjoyed his seafood pesto. The service is the best we've had all week. Plan on returning later this week. 2 Thumbs up.

Thank you for your review of your visit with us. I am glad that you enjoyed the food and service. Dana is a new team member here, and while I know that she does a great job, it's always nice when the guests bring it to my attention too.
We look forward to seeing you again, be sure to ask for Dana on your next visit!
Thank you,
Jackie

“Very Good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

We tried several different things, from appetizers, to dinners and everything was very good. Also the service was very good. The lunches were OK, but the dinners were very good! that is why I gave it a 4 instead of a 5.

“A must visit at least once”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

Good "beach food". I eat there almost every-time I go to N.S.
Great variety. Good portions. Good service. Great Key-lime pie.
Their crab cakes are very good. The fish taste fresh and the drinks are varied and they seem to have a good mixologist ( if that is even a word).

“Nothing special”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

We went as a family and it seemed a little over priced for the quality and the amount received. It isn't some place we would frequent.

“Dinner at Norwoods”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2014

Spent an enjoyable time at Norwoods celebrating a birthday and an anniversary with family. Wine tasting was available on the patio before dinner. Nice atmosphere but very crowded and at times noisy since we were sitting in the middle of the room. Ordered calamari with marinara sauce - it was good but not the best. Our orders were prime rib, hogfish snapper, and two combination platters. Once again, food was good, but not 5 star. The hogfish snapper was very dry and the combo platters were probably the better choice but only if you like fried foods. We live in Florida and eat at seafood restaurants frequently and thought this could have been much better for the price.
