It was alright. I had a senior citizen dining with me so we were moving a bit slower but an impatient waiter rudely "excused" himself to rush past us when he could have been gentler and more accommodating to us. Bread took forever to come. Plus side, I did not like the taste of my beer and the waiter changed it with no hassle. They gave us a huge table, enough to sit 10 but we only had 6 - too roomy. Overall, an acceptable performance.

Thank you Kingfish - we had such an amazing night! Hospitable service, really loved the cocktails and the fresh start with the watermelon salad! We hadn't been in, in a few months but will definitely return over the weekend - nice job by all of your friendly staff and great food!
