Table was ready when we arrived and they were very busy. The menu has changed dramatically since we were here last, and was a little disappointed that they no longer have the option of choosing the fish and how you would like it prepared. Having said that, they did have a nice selection of fish available. Everyone chose the Crab Bisque, and it was excellent. U-10 Scallops were properly prepared and were delicious and both people that had them were very pleased. The Crab Cake dinner was enjoyed as was the Hangar Steak (very tender and served medium rare). Deserts were enjoyed by all, Creme Brulee, Peach Cobler, as well as ice cream. Looking forward to our next visit. Special note. #1 our server, Elane" was exceptional, truly helped make our evening very pleasant. Special note. #2 Try the Orange Crush from the bar, you won't be disappointed

Service was very slow and everything seemed "off". I had the special which was "potato encrusted salmon" which consisted of an overly grilled piece of salmon with four pieces of
thinly sliced potato grilled onto the top. The selection of steamed mixed vegetables that
we have enjoyed in the past was replaced with ordinary green beans. My lobster bisque soup
which is another long-time favorite was tasty but served luke warm. It seems like there is
a new chef and he is steering the menu away from our previous favorites - e.g. the "naked
fish" selections with various toppings was gone. All in all a very disappointing visit and no
longer worth a long drive.

We had a nice view of the canal from the dining room. Food was great. We got the chefs specials salmon and scallops. Service was a bit slow but that was expected on the first warm weather night of the season. Overall good experience

over all our experience was great. the waitress was a bit slow with follow up . My boyfriend went to tip the oil for the bread and the cap had not been tightened so he got and oil bath. BUT the manager came over and gave us a voucher for dry cleaning. The food was fabulous. we had indoor seating away from the vibrant bar scene . The view of the canal was great through a large window. I would definitely recommend highly

We’ve eaten here several times & have had good meals. Monday nite was very disappointing. I had the Scallops with crabmeat - it was full of shells & the scallops had no taste. My husband had the pork chops - they were slightly better but not much. I’m hoping this was an anomaly. so we’ll try it again.

Strawberry blonde cocktail was too sweet. Orange crush cocktail was delicious. Calamari was good and came out hot. Wife enjoyed the oysters but $3 per seemed high. Crab cakes were fantastic. Filet was ok and will try fish next time. Great view of the river.

The service was good (especially on Valentine's Day). One thing is that we had to ask for bread and felt sort of rushed.

I was disappointed in my meal. I ordered the penne pasta with crab, shrimp and scallops. I had it on New Year's Eve and it was absolutely delicious. Whoever made it on V-day went a tad crazy with red pepper. It was not that spicy and was more of a blush sauce.

My husband ordered the stuffed oyster shells appetizer was very skimpy and the jumbo shrimp was large at best. He ordered sushi also. Needless to say, he was hungry when we left. Our guest ordered salmon which was grilled and dry. Her replacement was raw inside. They took the salmon off of our ticket, and gave us a coupon for another visit.

THe Service was wonderful. The shrimp special was outstanding and creative, with the greens and black-eyed pea cake adding extra flare. The atmosphere is awesome. We went from dining to comedy show to dance floor and back to patio bar and had such a wonderful date night. Then walked back to our B&B!

A $34 filet mignon should not have an ounce of fat on it or be tough to cut. For $3 side dishes the Au Gratin potatoes were very dry as well as the Mac n cheese. Pork chop was very fatty. $86 meal turned into us feeling like we would’ve rather have eaten at a fast food joint. Very disappointed. Service was decent. However Server smelled of cigarettes and had no details on the list of specials she went over so I had no idea what she was talking about until I was eavesdropping and heard the male server next to us explaining everything I’m fine detail to the couple beside us.
