The service was pretty good and the food was decent, but I wouldn't say it was any better than Red Lobster. For the price, I expected much better. For two entrees (that were in the middle price range relative to the rest of the entrees on the menu), a soda, a tea, and 20% tip the total came out to be $84 and some change. That's no appetizer and no alcohol. The location probably has something to do with the steep prices but still...Overall, I was disappointed and won't return.

We had lunch here and ordered the crab stuffed mushrooms appetizer and shrimp and grits meal. The food was very good and the atmosphere is nice. Service started off a little slow but once she took our order it was fine.

Excellent service and good food. Great Caesar salad and wonderful seafood boil. Good baked shrimp. Bread was good - unless you love pimiento cheese ask for butter.

We went on a night when the place was far from full. The food was pretty good - shrimp and flounder, both stuffed with crab, and good portions. The Caesar salad was tasty, but had too much dressing. The waiter was poorly trained, and tried get by on his personality (unsuccessfully!) - we had a coupon for a free shrimp cocktail with our two entrees, but we had to ask four times to get it, and we wound up having this appetizer for dessert.
