Despite having called for reservations and being told that we had chosen a "good time"' the service was very slow. We were seated at 7:30PM. We were greeted promptly and our drinks arrived within minutes. Our experience went downhill from there. It took over 30 minutes for our appetizers to arrive. By that time, the inside of the restaurant was nearly cleared out. Our waitress kept assuring us our dinner would be right out. By 9PM we finally had to ask for our food to go, as we still hadn't received our entrees. At 9:15 we were the only ones left inside, with staff standing around and blowing out candles. The manager brought our food and took 50% off of our entrees. Bad experience aside, the food was excellent. The citrus salmon was the best I have ever had.

Waited a few more than acceptable minutes before being acknowledged by a hostess. (And it was not busy) Very cold AC inside so we opted for an outside table. Tables on the porch are very close together, but the view is excellent. There was a light breeze from the water and the overhead fan added to a comfortable temperature. Our server, Cassy was a bit of a "smart-aleck" which was a turn-off. Enjoyed fresh raw clams on the half-shell. My husband had the shrimp salad po-boy which he liked very much. A lot of shrimp, good bun! They also had one of my favorite wine blends, Apothic.
Street parking, but we dined late enough that this was not a problem.

Stopped here for lunch yesterday during the Annual Water Festival. We're seated right away and our server was able to offer suggestions for a draft beer. Sandwiches we ordered were very tasty and fresh.

We had a wonderful dinner! The Manager, Matt, was so friendly and helpful that we felt like we were best friends. Lindsey, our server, was excellent. The setting is very pleasant and we enjoyed our evening. I am a very slow eater and never once felt rushed to give up the table.
In fact, Matt encouraged us to hangout as long as we wanted.
