The food was good, but, way too over-priced for the portion. A meal of 4oz. of lobster (per the waiter), kale and about 10 pieces of gnocchi was $36 - this is a la carte. The food and service is very good, but, they are clearly charging ridiculous prices to make up for the fact that they are not making money selling alcohol - this restaurant is byob. There are much better places available.

The food was great - had shrimp and grits appetizer, amongst the best we've ever had. Tuna appetizer was good as well, could have been sliced thinner and seasoned. Crab cake entree was delicious - very fresh, no filler, the dill sauce that was under them slightly overpowered the mild crab flavor. Too much dill. Chicken entree was done well. Great flavor. Bread pudding dessert was more of a bread cake, tasty, high end chocolate, but too dry to be called a pudding.

The atmosphere - stuffy, elite pastel outfits of the vacationing, raised pinkie finger, uber-rich from Loveladies was just too stuffy for our tastes.

Our waiter was impeccably trained, not intrusive, yet attentive. A true pro at his job. A+ on his part.

While the food and service was excellent, just not our type of crowd. Slightly less packed and loud compared to a high end Theater-district restaurant before show time. And pricey. And cash only. If we want very upscale, perfectly prepared food, we'll stick with Richard at the Gables.

We ate here on opening weekend 2013. We ate here 2010 on closing weekend of the restaurants opening season and a number of times in between. Picnic style tables for family dining and outdoor tables for those gorgeous weather days, this BYOB has a raw bar. The vegetables and seafood are from local farms and fisheries, Expensive, but not any more than other island restaurants. Largest scallops I have ever had!!!

I like duck but never raw. I sent it back and it came back medium rare. The waitress then realized I was unhappy and asked it I would prefer something else. I chose a steak and finally ate after the other 7 people at our table were eating dessert.
