“What happened Alice?”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2013

I recall this restaurant being up the road next to Charlotte P's- the food was pretty good and the atmosphere was nice. However, they moved down the street into the old Sandollar Pavillion. All I can say is "what happened?" The place STINKS TO HIGH HEAVEN. The furniture is old and greasy. It is really sad because this restaurant has the better view of the harbor than Charlotte Plumbers. I'm not sure if the insurance on this place is so expensive that the owners can't put the money into better food, service, and/ or updating- very outdated. Reminds me of the Regal Begal from "Three's Company"

“Avoid at all cost”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2013

We sat for over 10 minutes before our server came to the table. Drinks took another ten minutes. Salads and appetizer only appeared after we inquired about them. At this point, our young server stated that he was really sorry for the delay and that the kitchen had lost our ticket. After waiting a total of 55 minutes for our Shrimp and Crab boils, we asked to speak to the manager ( who is also the owner) . She went on to state how hard she was working in the kitchen to get the food out and that our order should be out momentarily. She proceeded to BLAME THE HOSTESS FOR NOT TELLING US THAT THE BOILED SPECIAL WAS THE LONGEST COOK TIME ON THE MENU. She was rude and sullen and took no responsibility for the poor service and long wait. Moments later there was a crash as our tables food was dropped by our overwhelmed server. Needless to say we got up to leave. This place should be out of business. This owner has NO CLUE how to run a service business.

“didn't eat there, but wasn't impressed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2013

Bar is separate from restaurant, but still smell lots of cigarette smoke in restaurant. Looked at menu & was very high priced. Apparently all the cars we had seen outside were for the bar, not the restaurant. Glad we didn't stay.

“Left with a soar taste”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2013

Cold, crappy, overpriced food, undercooked burger. Server tried. The owner was unphased and RUDE! While paying, we mentioned problems we had and she found a way to blame us for it. She showed no humility or sympathy. We will NEVER return!

“Good food and service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2013 via mobile

Went in. Young kid was the server. He new the specials. Knew the menu. Impressive. Ordered meatloaf. Out if it. Ordered grilled fish and baked potato. Good. Slightly
Over cooked but tasty. Kid checked on me the approximate amount of times. Ordered key lime pie. Out. :-(. Left the kid a nice tip for the excellent service.
