“Pricey, average restaurant”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

The staff at our hotel recommended this place. It clearly is a local hot spot, but we found the place to be average. The atmosphere was noisy, and food was Ok. One of my children ordered off the kids menu and the chicken was overly battered and greasy. We ordered a burger medium well, and the meat was raw on the inside. We sent it back and then it was overcooked. The service was friendly, but the prices were high for what we got. The decor was cute. The table next to us had loud, uncontrolled kids and every they got up (several times), the whole booth shook. That was not the restaurant's fault, but still, the booths were not secured.

“Good Pub Food”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

We went for pub food and had a good experience. Wings and shrimp were especially good, and the drinks were fine and reasonably priced. Service was a little slow even though it did not seem particularly busy. Staff did not appear to be utilized as effectively as possible. Overall, it was a good value.

“Great meal, service, and atmosphere”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

Went with a small group to celebrate an adult birthday and we all enjoyed this restaurant. Started out with crab jalepenos and firecracker shrimp. Very good and enough to share. Enough choices on menu to satisfy a small or large appetite and/or budget. The special was a crab-stuffed salmon that was excellent as was the fish and grits from the regular menu. Our server seemed to be responsible for several tables and yet still kept up with our requests with a smile and even took the time to take photos. We went early on a Saturday evening and by the time we left, the restuarant was packed.
