Service was horrible. When our server did come to our table you couldn’t hear her. Our server I think just forgot about us. We had to go to the bar to get our bill. I know finding staff is very hard and would like to try them again at some point.

I didn’t even finish my soup and it was still too much…..therefore there was no way to finish my wonderful pecan encrusted whitefish dinner. And then no way to enjoy even a shared dessert.😔. Dessert would have been a wonderful way to celebrate our anniversary.

Food came out hot and beverage service was timely. Entrees were good size portions. All fish entrees were cooked properly. I wish the french fries were unseasoned . Don’t care much for the herbal flavoring’s.

The food overall was good. Our waitress was fairly attentive. Apps and drinks came out right away. Margarita was not very good. The dinner was delayed for an hour and 15 minutes from the appetizers. Multiple table set after us receiving their food before we did. The waitress came by multiple times stating that it will be soon or a few more minutes. This is the inconsistency that has persisted and has happened a couple times before as well.

First, it's located inside a hotel and the sign is so old and dark you can't read it. Wasted forever trying to find the place. You get in and it's basically a bar with tables in two areas on the sides. Whole place reeks of fish so if you're not into seafood stink don't go here. Bar area was loud as hell dozens of fools being loud. Service was atrocious. Waitress barely came around because she was working a big group in the other room. Waited forever for a check (humongous bill) for average prime rib. Went up to bar and got completely ignored by both bar tenders. This place ruined our 12 year anniversary and almost ruined my marriage proposal later that evening. I haven't had such terrible service at such a ridiculous price in all my adult life. The menu is also extremely limited. One page of maybe 20 food choices but a whole page of wine. Do not waste your time or money here. Several better choices in the area

He had always wanted to try Planks and you did not disappoint!! The atmosphere was friendly and quiet. We could hear each other despite other families enjoying themselves also. The food was fresh and delicious!! The service was amazing! Thank you for a wonderful evening!!

WTF? We almost left, but at 6:30 pm on Christmas Eve there aren’t too many options. I’m glad we stayed. Dinner and service were excellent. We even stayed for dessert. While our server Toni did an amazing job running up and down the stairs, we felt sorry for the extra effort she made for us to have an enjoyable evening. With that said, there won’t be a next time for upstairs.
