“Why So Popular?”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

I really wanted to give Hurricane a better rating, but we simply didn't have a great experience. My husband and I just ate dinner here, and came to Hurricane based on the good Trip Advisor ratings. We had drinks at the bar, which were good, while we waited for our table. My husband and I had the oysters rockefeller, clams casino, and beef carpaccio for an appetizer. Sadly, none of the appetezer were above average.

Unfortunately, our service went downhill after our average appetizers were served. At this point, a drunk group was seated next to us. They were annoying and rowdy, but not quite distracting enough to be asked to leave. Of course, I don't blame Hurricane for the annoying guests, but it didn't make for a pleasant experience, and they wound up monopolozing most of our waitress' time.

My husband ordered a steak which was covered in butter, and I ordered the seafood casserole. Both were slightlyt below average. The seafood casserole didn't have much flavor and my husband's steak was just okay. Plus, it was undercooked a bit. I was interested in dessert, but because our experience was already lacking, we decided to leave.

Overall, both the food and the service were below average to average. On a positive note, the restaurant and bar area is nice, and we sat next to a window during dinner for a nice view until the sun went down. I know many people enjoy this restaurant, so maybe we were there on an off night; however, we won't be back.

“Great food and views”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

We went Monday before 6:30 and my wife decided to take advantage of the price fix specials (which were a good deal). Her chicken dish was great as were the Ceasar salad and creme brulee. I had the Mediterranean seafood stew which included half a lobster, mussels and clams. Food was excellent as was the service. The wine list had a nice assortment of whites and reds by the glass and I thought the prices were very reasonable. The sunset was spectacular and we had the perfect view over looking the river. This is a very lovely restaurant; perfect for a date night.
