“busy ok place”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

They were very busy since it was a Friday nite. Our order was taken promptly by a friendly waitress but we waited over 1/2 hr for it to come to the table. In the mean time we were told they were out of baked potatoes and it was only 7:30. I was able to get the fish tacos and they were excellent. My husband had the quarter chicken with the 1/2 rack of ribs. The ribs were very tender but not much flavor in the meat without the BBQ sauce added on the top. After the food was delivered to our table the waitress seem to disappear. Ok but probably would not go back to.

“Awesome service, Great food”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

The waitress was so bubbly and outgoing, definitely got the tip that she deserved. A lady with us recently obtained a new job and the waitress brought her free dessert with brownie bits and chocolate syrup on ice cream. FREE. Over the top service you couldn't help but leave happy and full.

“Horrible food, great server.”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

The food was terrible and took over an hour. It was martini night and all of our Martinis tasted like Kool-aid. The cashew chicken stir fry was highly recommended and it was greasy and the pile of noodles it came with were starchy and way over cooked. We did have a great server named Fawn. Skip this one.

“Cold restaurant. Colder food”
Reviewed August 18, 2013 via mobile

Cold tasteless food served by a waiter that gave the impression he would have rather been anywhere else. Would go anywhere else to eat. Don't waste your time and money going here.

“The worst resteraunt in port Elgin”
Reviewed August 8, 2013 via mobile

This was the worst meal I've had in a long time! No wonder they call it crabby joes , our server the past 5 times were the most crabby people we could imagine getting , they threw the menus on the table walked away came back and all they would say is WADDA YOU WANT! Then the wait would be over an hour just to get either cold food or the wrong thing and half the time they would forget your drink . The prices really aren't horrible but for the service that you get , they aren't good . Half the time you just want to get in get out and not come back we will only go if every other resteraunt is closed
