  • Loved the food/waitress not so much
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 9/16/2014
    Food was great, loved the view. Waitress never served our food. Server brought it out, another server volunteered to put on our table so we didn't have to wait for ours. Then she showed up again when she asked if we wanted dessert. Key lime pie delicious. Would go back but would ask for a different waitress.

    Everything is usually good here, but I don't care for a place where dogs are allowed. Dogs should not be in a restaurant in my opinion. Other than that I would recommend it.

    ...the hush puppies were overcooked. They should be a light golden, not a dark brown that you have to cut with a knife before trying to eat without hurting your gums.

    As a seafood restaurant that indicates blue crabs on the menu, I am extremely disappointed that I was informed that there hasn't been steamed blue crabs available since February 2014. I don't understand why blues can't be shipped in from LA, MD or VA.

    We arrived early had a cocktail at the outside bar. We were seated at our table within 5 min. Nice view but the table was located next to a door leading out to the deck which was used for seating patrons. Our appetizer was the Coconut Shrimp, main courses were the Scallops and the Shrimp and Pasta with a white sauce. All food was great as well as the wine. Price reasonable <> $80.00 without tip. Waitress was very nice and helpful. The paper that was used on the tables was very annoying, every time the hostess seated someone outside and opend the door a gust of wind would blow the paper up rearranging what ever was on the table. Waitree finally put a stack of small plates on the end of the table. on top of he paper, problem solved.

    We waited 5 minutes after being seated before anyone greeted us or asked us if we would like a water etc. it could have been a new shift starting though. Once our waitress Nicole did come to the table she was very good. Ordered 2 appetizers. Both failed. Coconut shrimp and California rolls. I had the ahi tuna salad for dinner,was very good. Little over cooked even though I ordered it rare. My daughter ordered the steamer pot. She enjoyed it. My husband ordered some sort of pasta in wine sauce. He said it was ok.

    This was our first visit, it won't be our last. The food was excellent, we had the special of the evening, amberjack, it was excellent, served over rice that had a wonderful flavor with green beans, cooked to perfection. The service was excellent, view to die for, all and all it was an excellent first visit. Honestly, the best meal I have had in a very long time!

    Expected a great dining experience and was very disappointed. The service was terrible. Order was inaccurate, the server never checked up on us after busboy brought our food. What really grossed us out was watching an employee clean up spilled iced tea on the deck then use the SAME cloth to wipe tables. The only saving grace was the waterside table and harbor view.

    We wanted to have a very special experience for a 44th wedding anniversary and some place with a romantic ambience and we found it at your restaraunt. The food was excellent and the service was great. We would visit this place many more times. We just loved the view to bad the weather didn't co-operate and there was a terrible lightning storm going on, as we would have preffered to sit outside but the wife said NO.

    We used the online reservation system and received a call on the morning of to confirm. Our hostess was very accommodating. Half our party was stuck on the highway in a horrible rain storm and was late. We had 3 little one's with us and we all enjoyed ourselves. Although the food was very good, the market prices were very pricey and a surprise on the bill.
