We have never been here even though we live nearby. This was our first and last visit. The menu is totally over priced for the quality of the food that you get. To add insult to injury, they have a split plate fee. That's ridicules. They tout how fresh the fish is, yet the piece that my wife ordered had a fishy taste. Obviously it wasn't fresh. Service was so so. Totally geared toward the tourist. They don't care if the locals come back or not, cause there's another tourist coming to town tomorrow. Won't be back.

Have been here twice, good food both times. Menu getting a little dated, but definitely some yummy options. On our second visit, we opted for dining room seating. The room was less than 1/2 full, the hostess tried to seat us at a tiny 2-top by the kitchen door...we declined and she said they'd get another table ready. Took about 5 minutes, but was worth the wait. Our server Andrea, was great! We had an app, then salads and entrees, she timed them out perfectly, was very helpful. We mentioned that it was our anniversary, and at the end of our meal surprised us with their special pancake dessert. We'll definitely be back!

Great service and wonderful food! I would recommend calling ahead for reservations. We did not do this, it was a very busy weekend, but they were able to seat us on the outdoor patio.

Had heard great things about this place & love seafood. So was excited to try it. Drinks were not great; salads that came w/dinner were boring. Veggies were fairly good. None of us (of 4) were thrilled w/the grouper or shrimp we ordered. Not worth the price, IMO. Was not bad, but was not good either. Very average.

Very nice dinner. We called on a Saturday looking to make reservations for that evening. We were told first available was 9pm........so we decided to show up and see what sort of wait we had. Only 30 minutes. We scored a table in the bar area, but it was so nice, we just decided to stay there. Food cooked perfectly and very nice atmosphere. Dim lights, dark wood, great ambiance. Would definitely return.
