The food is expensive for what you get. It reminded me of a Red Lobster vibe but more expensive. The dishes were heavy which I was not looking for.

We were there to celebrate hubby's 44th birthday because he wanted seafood. We were by far the youngest in the restaurant. Server was awesome! Wish I remembered his name! I'm terrible with names. We ordered calamari for appetizer. It was unlike any calamari we'd ever had. It was thick cuts of calamari fried in a light tempura batter. It was so tender and delicious! We chose soup with our meal. I had clam chowder that some of the best I've ever had. Hubby ordered seafood gumbo of which he found no seafood and he wasn't sure the was sausage either. He wasn't sure what kind of soup it really was. His entree was the seafood pasta which was full of seafood and he devoured every bite. I ordered the walleye which is one of there most ordered meals. The fish was muddy tasting and the coating that was supposed to be crispy was a bit on the mushy side. The side of roasted new potatoes were lukewarm at best. The bread that comes with your meal is amazing! I think the prices are reasonable if the food is cooked well and tastes good. Hubby's was good, and it was his birthday so that was the most important!

The food is excellent, and the menu provides a great variety of choices. At our table, we had the red grouper, walleye and catfish. Each dish was delicious and prepared well, as were the salads and vegetables.

We had a lovely evening celebrating our mom’s birthday. Our server was delightful and very helpful. We all loved our entrees, but the sauces are always disappointing - not much flavor. We would love some sauces that aren’t cream-based.

Food was ok but nothing special for the price. Server was nice but we barley saw her. They forgot something that we ordered and it was a good 10min before our server showed up. She never came to see if we were happy with service/meal.

Maybe went expecting too much. My children live ini Indy and told us how they loved it The server was very busy but still did a nice job with our order. The fish and chips were average but the salmon was terrific.
Our table seem to be right in the middle of everything and was very noisy and there was no privacy.
