    Everything was very good, waitress was excellent. The one thing I would suggest is if you are serving Lobster you should have bibs, small forks and wetnaps other than that it was very good

    It was OK. Very slow getting food to us but it was definitely hot. I had lobster and had not been cracked. Made for a very messy dinner. If I were in the area would go back. But would not make a special trip to eat there.

    We were seated right away due to not other customers which was immediate concern for 7pm seating. Took several mins for server to arrive and we had to ask him to take drink order. Food was mediocre - steak well undercooked / grits mushy / pasta over sauced / fries not sure what happened there. The bill arrived and was about $100 over what we anticipated - server added himself 25% tip! We still were not able to confirm food amounts as never added up and confusing. Will absolutely NEVER go to this place again. Appears the servers want to ensure a good tip so they just add what they believe is good for them despite poor to almost mediocre service. We did not argue or protest as the staff did not appear friendly or open to answer questions. Not at all impressed and plan to contact any person who would take a call; however, skeptical anyone really cares. Definitely not a restaurant to put on your list to visit. Bottom of barrel or under barrel at best.

    We ate there last year and enjoyed so much! This year it was very good! But my grouper was a little over grilled. Grouper should be flakey when cooked to perfection!

    I enjoyed my dinner. However the fries were over cooked and the hush puppies burned. The replacement hush puppies were still over cooked. Cedric, our server, was outstanding. Dessert was good. I might return for a second chance. There are other good options around, so that is not a guarantee.

    This restaurant doesn't have an identity, it advertised Seafood and Steaks, but falls short on Steaks...it appears it's more of a sports bar than anything else...it was dark, dank, hard to read menus and was very expensive for what the meal was....very surprised this could be reserved on open table, as this was basically an open bar-type restaurant....food quality was mediocre and not worth the price...Do NOT recommend this to anyone.

    We ordered the surf and turf. The crab cake was very good but our ribeye was terrible, at least 1/3 gristle and bone which should have been recognized in the kitchen. They did make a new meal that was acceptable. The service was barely acceptable. No steak knife with the 1st meal, no utensils at all with the 2nd, no drink refill offered during our meal. Not a good experience.

    Made reservations in advance for outdoor seating. They put us in an interior booth due to staffing shortages. Three steaks were ordered and all came out the same (medium well) and two should have been medium rare. Red snapper special was awesome. Not worth the high price tag.

    We made a quick reservation for 6:45, walked in, and were sat immediately. Jaylen, who we found out later was the manager, was super nice and attentive. It didn’t take us long to receive our appetizer (barbecue shrimp) and it was delicious. I had the fried grouper and shrimp with fries and cheese grits, and my husband had the seafood pasta. We were both happy with our selections. The service was great, and I’m glad we stopped in. If we are ever in the area again, we would eat there.

    We've been going there for years, and we won't be going back. The appealing thing about this restaurant in the past was that the food was slightly above average and the prices were reasonable, even though you had to look over the run down building and atmosphere. Now, the atmosphere is worse because they haven't put a single dollar into the place, and they've raised their prices astronomically. Side of Mac and Cheese $14. Pimento Cheese Dip $14. Wedge Salad $14. Shrimp n Grits $34. 3oz portion of Wreck Fish Special $42. Pecan Pie slice $14. Highest end prices with lowest end ambiance and slightly above average food quality.

    The food was good. Service not so good as waitress forgot to take our order until 30 minutes after being sat…she couldn’t bring us the correct appetizer she seemed confused as to what hummus & pita bread was, brought us pimento cheese and fries instead and only able to finally bring the correct appetizer out minutes before entrees at which point was not needed due to the only reason we ordered the app was to appease hungry baby who needed a snack prior to dinner. There was seemingly no air conditioner in the restaurant and our whole party was uncomfortable & sweating the entire time we were there. Quality/taste of food was good, however probably will not be back due to the other issues!

    We arrived a few minutes early for our reservation. We were told there wasn’t a table saved for us. Waited half an hour. The poor wait staff was friendly but unable to handle the large number of large groups. Left waiting for long periods of time to order food or receive any assistance. The price we paid for the food was nowhere near matching it’s quality. The fried calamari and shrimp did have good flavor. However, the Fries were dense and burnt. The ribs were dry and lacked a good amount of sauce. Overall a poor experience, will not be going back.
