We had super service! Roland, our waiter was excellent! He recommended Canal Street Redfish, which was Panko crusted, pan seared redfish topped with a cajun garlic sauce and topped with Sauteed Shrimp, served with veggies. It was fabulous!! My husband had the ribeye and it was cooked to perfection!!

There was no wait time at all and the food was excellent. I had the shrimp and grits and they were excellent. We had oysters for an appetizer and I will say they were some of the best that I had ever had. Can't wait to go back again.

I and my wife decided to try some of the local flavor based on a recommendation from the staff at our hotel. We went for an early dinner at around 4:30pm and were greeted by a young man feverishly occupied with his cell phone. However, he sat us promptly and we thought nothing of it. We reviewed the menu for several minutes and decided on our dishes. Afterwards, we sat for 15 minutes while staff members, including the host, walked by as if we were ghosts; I assure you we are living beings. We decided to leave and politely returned the menus to the host, informing him that we were leaving; his response was "OK, bye" and continued on his cell phone. We will never return and never recommend this restaurant. We found top notch customer service, politeness, and attentiveness at Bubba Gump's; all served with a smile that was rewarded with a substantial tip.

This is a well-situated bar/restaurant, with a lively relaxed ambiance, and good food. The menu is diverse and should cater to most tastes.

However. We arrived as a party of four. We were quickly shown to a table that contained us just fine. Around the time we ordered, two friends sent a message to say that they'd like to join us. When they arrived, the table next to us was free, so we suggested they sit there. But the waiter explained in no uncertain terms that this was not possible, and we should not contemplate tying to sit with our friends. Then they were told by the maitre d' that they could not sit there, because there was a 20 minute wait for a table (there were lots of free tables: I'd say 30% of all the tables in the place, at the time). So they left, and we didn't get to spend time with our friends, and the restaurant lost two diners. The empty tables stayed, for the most part, empty throughout our time in the restaurant.

I know that the capacity issue extends to the kitchen and wait staff as well as the table itself. But extending a party of four to a party of six is something that happens every day in most casual dining settings. I'd have happily left there and then, myself, but I don't think those I arrived with would have been up for that. The attitude that underlies this is baffling - and it's a great way to alienate diners.
