This location was recommended by our hotel. The prices were a little high for the quality of food. My husband ordered shrimp and grits. The grits were undercooked,bland and dry. They do not serve baked potatoes. I got a steak. The smallest steak was 12oz. Steak was outstanding. Garlic potatoes tasted like they were instant potatoes. I asked for a salad. Had to pay almost $5.00 extra for a side salad. The salad did not come with the meal. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone. Service was good and friendly.

We enjoyed a great meal, the menu included seafood and sandwiches. The staff was friendly and the meal was a good value. It would be a good place to go to watch ACC basketball at the bar.

This location was recommended by our hotel. The food was good, but the prices seemed to be a bit high for the quantity/quality received. The bar area was a bit loud and distracted from the normal tranquility of a dining area.

Went to the Red Drum by the hotel front desk suggestion. When we were seated I was expecting bar fare, bot was I in for a surprise. My son wanted the "Fresh Stuffed Jalapeños" to start, from the first bite of fresh (not frozen-premade) pepper with the cilantro/green onion sour cream and chipotle salsa I knew we were in for a treat. I had a Mahi special...spectacular. My son had the Seafood sauté....outstanding. My brother had a crab cake special which was also fantastic. All the sides were great as well. I had just returned from the Bahamas a couple of days ago, and not one seafood meal compared to this. Don't pass this place up!!!

My
Husband and I were taking an evening walk when we came upon the place so we decided to step in and look at the menu. We stayed and enjoyed a quick dinner and a nice bottle of wine.
I had the steamed shrimp and veggies, he had a salad with grilled salmon, everything was very good. In fact we enjoyed it so much we went back later in the week.
