We went for my birthday hoping to have no children there. However, across from us was sitting a young girl about 10. The food was good. The service was amazing. Overall, glad we went.

We love this place and usually rate everything a 4 or 5, but our last visit we waited 20 min before seeing our waitress, she “lost” our order and had to retake it and brought appetizers with the meal. I hope anyone who was there for the first time and had here will not make a judgement on the restaurant if they had they same experience. We will definitely go back but hopefully she was just having an off night

Delicious cashew chicken linguine dinner with a bowl of gumbo to start on a frigid night. Generous serving size…leftovers for dinner tonight. Great service; we weren’t in a hurry and the server was timely in checking with us.

This is a nice neighborhood gathering place that has good drinks and a nice selection of food (this is attached to Kona Jacks-and that menu is also available on request). Met with 4 high school buddies (from the 70's). We were able to sit for a long time and eat / drink, with our waiter, Michael, checking in with us periodically. LOVE the Parmesan crusted grouper !!!! Look forward to my next visit !!!!

Service was wonderful and timely. Nice size cocktails. Did not care for the breading on the walleye or the sauce that much. The asparagus was tough and not seasoned very well. Will problem try a different menu item next time. Our friends had fillets & lobster and both said it was very good

Very good food with awesome selections! Considering that they were short staffed, we never once experienced a delay and our food and drinks came out quickly and amazingly.

Definitely a good choice for a dinner with friends and/or family!

Our server, Michael was fantastic. He was prompt, courteous and professional. Our evening was terrific. By the way I had dinner at DJ’s last Friday night, lunch at DJ’s yesterday, dinner there last night and lunch at Kona Jack’s tom, Thursday. Do I get an award?

Eve was our server, she was amazing, efficient, and very pleasant. It was my sisters birthday, so Eve fussed over her, brought a dessert with a candle. The restaurant was very busy & noisy at lunch, but she made our experience very enjoyable

Great food, great service. Atmosphere is quiet. Good selection of food, and seafood/sushi selection is very good with Kona Jack's being next door.

Parking is plentiful, and the location is easy to access. Will certainly return.

Order was wrong no corrective action excuse was she grabbed the wrong dish. Cobb salad was ok, more meat than salad. Brought appetizer out with dinner instead of before hand. Gelt like ahe was rushing to get us out. Place was not over crowded so it wasn't totally a staffing issue.

Nice restaurant and bar. First time visiting. Everyone was very pleasant and friendly. Menu was reasonably priced and the items we ate were all good. The only thing that kept it from 5 stars was the food was very slow coming out of the kitchen for all of the tables. Perhaps a kitchen staffing issue.
