Diner Reviews
  • "Good food; Service just fair needs improvement; music a bit noisy for early evening dining but great after 10pm. Good place for dining and socializing experience. Already recommending to friends, family, and business associates."
    Dined on 4/9/2014
  • "We go there to have all you can eat stone crabs or King crab. I am sorry that I can't give a better review about the food, but the crabs are ALWAYS GREAT. We so this monthly. It is only on Friday LOVE THOSE CRABS!!!!!"
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "Yes all you can eat lobster is appealing but depending on the season not always a wise choice. A couple years ago it started great! Now it's horrible, too busy too loud, one hour wait with a reservation. Horrible service! They slam the lobster on your table, don't have the proper plates for it. Tables are messy, servers are in a rush to stuff you and see you leave. Table for two by the kitchen, with non stop traffic and annoyingly noisy. We still dropped over $100 bill for dinner and felt like cattle ... Never going back nor recommending this place to anyone :("

  • "The only time I come to this restaurant is for the Lobster Special on Wednesdays. It's the best deal in town. Service is not the best as the place is full of patrons. The servers and bussers do their best to keep up so just be patient and you will get taken care of. Bar drinks are expensive. The live band is superb!!"

  • "I absolutely love this place, My family and I dined two weeks in a row. Our waitress was little bit on the impatient side and did not pay attention to what we ordered, she knocked over a drink did not wipe up the mess she made and charged us for the spilled drink, other than that, this place was great. Great music as well."

  • "Kitchen 305 has got its groove back! Service was on point and the food was great! Anyone who may have been disappointed in the past should give it another shot. Bringing in New floor management has certainly paid off."

  • "We went for the all you can eat lobster night. It was fun and a nice experience, but the food wasn't very tasty."

  • "Went for the Lobster Wednesday All you could it...wish that there was a way to remove the puddle of water in my plate when receiving the lobster and cracking it opened. Not sure if this was a tactic so that we ate fewer lobsters... Corn was over cooked and also waterlogged"
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "I made a reservation for 4 and it took 45 minutes for them to seat us.. I feel that if we have reservations we should of been seated no more than 10 minutes late. The food was ok we went for the all you can eat lobsters but the lobsters a over cooked. The waitres was friendly and kept bringing out more lobster so that was nice. The bar seen was fun in especially liked the girls that danced in the bar. The music was also enjoyable."

  • "The service was awesome! The food was GREAT!!! I went on all you can eat lobsters and the waitress kept them coming i just didn;'t like seeing the head on the lobster other than that my experience was awesome!"

  • "We had 10 pm reservations for Valentines and had to wait additional 1/2 hour (really?). The staff was obviously tired. Steaks seemed microwaved. Dessert was some strawberry think with a biscuit that was as hard a hockey puck. Almost $200 (with drinks). Very poor return on investment. Don't waste your money."

  • "I took my wife to Kitchen 305 for Valentines. I was pleasantly impressed with the over all vibe of the place. The bar was good, the bartenders were very nice, and the drinks were great. It didn't take very long to get seated. (Afterall, we did make reservations). Our waitress was very nice. Unfortunately the food was not as good. My wife had the all you can eat Stone Crabs. She loved them!!!! I ordered from the Valentines Menu. I would dare to say that my meal was not worth the $45. But seeing my wife so happy eating her all you can eat Stone Crabs made the hole experience worth while."

  • "When I booked out valentines day reservation 3 weeks in advance there was no note about a set menu. They couldn't seat us at the time of our reservation. We were first seated at a table next to an enormous doorway to a kitchen with no door so it was very bright and very loud. There was no list of wines by the glass but the waitress did allow me options of cab, merlot, Chardonnay etc.Mine tasted like dishwater so I sent it back. The mozzarella in the caprese salad was not high quality. The ribeyes were so fatty they were almost impossible to eat. Even the creme brûlée did not have the hard layer of fired sugar on it. 3 nearby tables of diners sat and left before ordering during the course of our meal and I wish we had done the same."

  • "I had dinner on a Tuesday night at kitchen 305; overall everything was good, however, they were out of a lot of the menu items. Robert the waiter said that they are revamping the menu in order to have more selections. I wished they had lobsters and crab legs a la cart on other nights besides their buffet nights ( Wednesdays and Fridays). it only seems right."
    Dined on 2/4/2014
  • "We enjoyed our dinner at this lovely establishment. We had a bit of a wait, even though we had reservations…but they were very gracious. We dined on unlimited stone crabs….delicious! There was a lot of hoopla with dancers on the bar, but that just added to the energy. If you are looking a a lively energetic experience, this is the place to be!"

  • "I scored big with visitors for inviting them to all you can eat lobster"
    Dined on 2/27/2013
  • "I enjoy the lobster here, but when i put a reservation for a table i expect to be seated at a decent time, not having to wait 45 min to get my seat. i specifically requested a booth for our party, but they gave us a table in the middle of the floor. they had an open booth for 15 minutes after they seated us so there was no issues with not having one available. if you are planning on having any kind of conversation with someone this isnt the place to do it without having to yell over the live band. the music was so loud, it was louder than most nightclubs or live concerts ive ever been to. if you plan on going i suggest earplugs."
    Dined on 1/22/2014
  • "Food, food and more food . Good service, plenty of lobsters, valet parking"
    Dined on 1/22/2014
  • "this is a great place for a nice dinner. A little loud in the main area, but if its too loud for you, you can always sit in the back area and still be able to listen to the live band."
    Dined on 8/28/2013
  • "The atmosphere is always great and the service is appreciated.The food is great because they have a variety if you don't like seafood or other certain things on the menu."
    Dined on 1/15/2014
  • "We had 545pm reservation and was promptly taken to our table which we opted to Sit at the bar ..bar is totally stocked and service was not bad bartender Sebastin was very nice and attentive the other two did not get there names where not talkative At all ., Overall first time on lobster night was very good definitely will go back"
    Dined on 1/15/2014
  • "All you can eat lobster was just that. Loud busy room with loud band made conversation impossible. Lobsters were overbooked and tough but of a good size. Service was poor at best. Salad or soup starters were mediocre at best. They grossed up the service charge to a compulsory. 20% so that the bill for. 3 was over$50. Better off to go to a good restaurant and pay that for 1 lobster that is prepared well and served to excite rather than dull the palate."
    Dined on 1/15/2014
  • "The all-you-can-eat stone crabs on Friday evenings are delicious and are a reasonable value. Service was great."
    Dined on 1/10/2014
  • "I can't rate the food as I only went for New Year's Eve cocktails. My friends that had 9:30 reservations did not receive their food until 11:30. Apparently they were forgotten in the back. They did report that the restaurant took care of them for this error. I am will to try any place that corrects their mistake. I thought the place was over crowded for New Year's. The ladies dancing on the bar was cute at first but when it comes to almost getting kicked in the head and concerned about drinks flying the "cuteness" goes out the door."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "we ordered the chilled seafood platter and were surprised at how much food. we has 2 lobsters, over a dozen king crab legs and huge shrimp all for about $45. we didnt need to order anything else. it was fresh and good. service excellent."
    Dined on 1/4/2014
  • "I have heard many reviews about the restaurant by close friends and associates however, I feel the whole experience was a bit under rated....the server was less than amused which was the opposite of what I had been told I would experience. We ordered the house sangria which was suggested by the server and it was a great suggestion ;) I ordered the mussels as a starter which was delicious! My entree was the filet mignon. It was ok but you really can't go wrong with a steak. My friend ordered the crab cake and it was less than tasteful. It was under seasoned and really didn't taste like fresh crab meat. Overall the ambiance was cool...won't be running back but I am willing to give it a second try on their seafood Wednesday :)"

  • "Elegant, sophisticated, and sublime! An outstanding affair. My guest and I were, once again, treated to a FIVE STAR dining experience. Our Server, William, never ceases in his quest to meet and exceed our every wish when we visit. He is quite simply one of the most thoughtful and highly skilled professional servers I have met. He is consistently gracious, charming, and enthusiastic at ensuring our service and experience is exempliary. His efforts, and those of his colleagues, are always top drawer and aimed toward achieving perfection!"

  • "I took a large party this past Friday night and had the worst stone crab dinner in my life. After hyping the all you can eat for a full year I brought a large group to share the experience we thoroughly enjoyed a year ago. We had a great time with our party but the stone crabs were ridiculously small, frozen and the ones that weren't frozen were terrible. They weren't cracked well, tore up our hands and when you got to whatever little meat there was it was basically inedible. We went last year and the stone crabs were amazing but this year they were terrible. I'd rather go elsewhere and know my stone crabs are fresh and edible and will never go back here for this particular meal."

  • "The french onion soup was the best i ever tasted. We also ordered the flatbread with chicken. That was also very good.The service was very slow. The waiter forgot our drinks and had to be remiinded. If he did his job timely we would have had bread for the table and not have them run out 45 min after we sat diwn"

  • "We dined at Kitchen305 last Thanksgiving and absolutely fell in love with the price and the various delicious selections offered. The restaurant was spacious and the set up was great so there was no traffic at the buffet stations. From the time you pull up to Valet to the time you get your car back, every staff member you encounter is a pleasant one. Thanks for such great hospitality."

  • "Friday nights are all you can eat stone crabs & crab claws for $55 per person. We had a 7:30pm reservation They ran out of stone crabs. Seriously! How does a restaurant not order enough. We were disappointed. Then the power and air conditioning went out twice."
