We loved eating here! The food was incredible. I would highly recommend that management install changing tables in the bathrooms, though. And a warning to patrons: there's no changing table in the public restroom serving the general Trinity Grove area, either. Very surprising and inconvenient.

Disappointed! Made a reservation but was escorted to the worst table in the house. Lots of empty tables but they seated us 4 feet from the kitchen door where all of the food comes out. Very busy & high traffic area. We asked for another table & were seated out on the patio where the temperature made it a bit uncomfortable. Not to mention, in the “special occasion” part of the reservation, we noted that it was my wife’s birthday but no acknowledgment. Why ask if it means nothing?! Food was great but disappointing experience.

Gumbo had good flavor but more of a gravy consistency than most of the gumbo I’ve ever had. It had set in the back so long that it had skimmed over. Both bowls at our table had set awhile. The salad with grilled chicken came out without the grilled chicken, which they had to cook and then bring out. I usually get grilled fish and it’s always very tasty. Think I’ll go back to the fish! The acoustics are so bad we couldn’t hear across our round table for 5. Better for a table of two or a table of 4.
But I will go back because I’ve always been pleased before.

I ordered the catfish dish, which in my opinion was very pricey for one small piece of fish.

Responded on April 6, 2019

Patriece, Thanks you for the feedback. Every comment is invaluable in our ongoing efforts to improve. One of the things we have to always consider is that all of our fish is market fresh daily, and never frozen, so sometimes our prices ARE going to be a bit higher than some of our market competitors that use frozen and re-freshed seafood. We are sorry you felt the price was too high, but hope that to see you soon so we can help you find something that exceeds your expectations.

We were celebrating my husband's birthday with our 2 children (20) and (16). We started with Calamari which was fantastic, unfortunately the portion was a bit small. The clam chowder soup was perfect! The blackened red fish had just the right amount of spice! My son ordered the lobster roll w/butter and he it ate in less than 3 minutes, it was awesome! My husband had the whole fish, great flavor, and our sweet server filleted it at the table, but unfortunately it had too many small bones, not surprising. Lastly, my daughter had the Creole crab cake (hatch chili style), it was a bit small as an entree and it was just ok, not great. She should have ordered the Blue Maryland style crab cake. All the sides, fried okra, Mac & Cheese, red beans & rice were great! Our server presented my husband with a birthday chocolate cream cheese pie and it was super! Altogether, we had a great experience and would like to try other things on the menu!

The food was good and the service was great. The prices are comparable to other seafood places but their portions are much smaller compared to most. It is a cool area to go eat and walk around afterwards.

Responded on March 28, 2019

Well thank you for the review Kevin! We are glad you had a great time dining with us, though we do appreciate your concern with our portion sizes. One of our points of pride is that we use fresh daily seafood, and sometimes that comes with a higher internal cost than some other concepts. That cost does sometimes translate to having to find the right balance between price point and portion size. We hope next time we can guide you to something that will be as filling as it is affordable.

Great service and food. Due to limited space the table spacing was tight and therefore caused you to hear everything around and everyone to speak louder.

Soooo good! Definitely coming back.
They have two menus; the menu they hand you and items written on their chalk board. I recommend ordering from the chalk board. It includes daily specials outside of the standard paper menu items.
Appetizer - We ordered the calamari. My sister really like it. I think I prefer calamari a little over cooked so I may not order it again.
Dinner - My sister ordered the Fish & Chips with Garlic Mashed Potatoes. She surprised herself with how much she liked it! She's not a big seafood eater but before she realized she was saying "I only have one left!"
I ordered the Parmesan Flounder with Butter Sauce and added the Alexander. My sides were the Garlic Mashed Potatoes and Broccoli. Toooo good! It is a weekly special made fresh so the chalk board may change depending when you visit. I hope it's on rotation next time I go!!
Drinks - Love Potion #9. Sweet and Delicious!

We had a bad experience with our waitress. She took forever to deliver drinks, left the salmon off of my friend’s salad (which was delivered to our table at about the time the rest of us finished eating), and we cancelled our 2nd round of drinks after waiting for about 10 minutes. She admitted that leaving the salmon off was her own fault but she didn’t even offer to come her meal. She gave us all free dessert cards for our next visit, really?
