“Great Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013

There have been a number of restaurant operations at this location, but this is by far the best. The best in food, the best in staff, the best in overall experience. The quality of their food is consistent and fresh. The staff is welcoming and well serving.

“The BEST scallops ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

This place was AMAZING! We had one of the best dinners EVER there the first night of our stay in Virginia! We ordered Scallops that were to die for and shrimp that was so succulent!! Just when we thought the fun was over, we ordered a home-made pumpkin cheesecake concoction that was truly AMAZING!

We went back a few days later to join friends for pizza and some drinks and were pretty impressed with the pizza as well.

Overall, a little treasure that could put many upscale places in big cities to SHAME! We had a wonderful experience and it was still super chill and down to earth!

“Yum”

The seafood is wonderful. THey offer large and small plates for those that aren't very hungry. The menu changes occasionally, but we always find something that we like.

“great lunch!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

We were so excited to have this restaurant open! The lunches are terrific! My favorite is the crab sandwich, but everyone loved what they ordered. We went back for dinner and it was below average. My steak should have been in a Philly Steak sandwich instead of a "dinner". I wish them lots of luck, but dinner's have to be upgraded. We haven't been back so they may have improved.

“Staff not very good.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2012 via mobile

Tried to take my wife out for a special dinner for our anniversary. Place was full so we stepped over to the bar side ro wait for a table. The bar side was full of smoke from cigarettes. After 45 minutes my wife went to check to see if a table was available. She noted the entire restaurant had turned over with all new customers sitting at the tables.
When she inquired the staff was very unconcerned. They then found us a table and took orders from two out of three of our group and just walked away. Enough was enough. I canceled rhe order paid for my drinks and left.

AVOID THIS RESTAURANT! @
