We came here for the first time during restaurant week. The food was excellent but a number of things detracted from the overall experience. They didn't offer the restaurant week menu--we had to ask for it. They didn't offer bread with the meal--we had to ask for it. When we needed service, the waitress wasn't coming by to check on us--we had to ask for her. When paying the bill, we weren't offered a parking voucher--we had to ask for it (and then it only covered about half the fee). The cost was a good value, but other restaurants offer a better overall experience.

Still limited menu it appears. Had chicken and waffles and it was rather dry and flavorless.

It was about 9:30 on a Saturday night and the server was amazing. We ordered a few appetizers (calamari - 8/10 and the old bay wings - 9/10) and drinks. I ordered a drink that had peach tea & bourbon and it was delicious. I ordered mahi mahi tacos as my meal and they were so good! They came with a side of street corn which was fresh and really nice. I’ve now been to the Rehoboth location and the Baltimore one and both have been a great experience.

Our server did not offer the restaurant week menu.We had to request it. I shared that my husband I were celebrating our 22nd anniversary and it was not acknowledged by the hostess or our server

This was my first visit to this restaurant. We had a great time. Our waitress Leah was very kind, friendly and energetic. She gave helpful food recommendations. The food was delicious and the portion sizes were larger than expected. We did not have to wait very long to receive our food. Overall great experience. I definitely plan to return.

I gave the ratings because. I’m from Philly we ate here a week before and everything was excellent so great that we came back the following weekend. But this time the experience was a bit different… we arrived early for our reservation so we sat at the bar. The bartender was horrible she didn’t say hello just roughly placed the menu in front of us and walked away. Barely spoke, bread was hard, shrimp a bit overcooked. One we sat at our table it got slightly better. Bread was still like a crouton. But the shrimp was better and the waiter spoke but didn’t check on us.

While the service was friendly and professional, we waited at least 25 minutes for our drinks to arrive. The restaurant was clean so very good for cleanliness. The atmosphere is a bit sterile and restaurant is on the louder side. Food was good but not enough to warrant going back anytime soon.

The waiter was not too helpful. He spent 10 minutes talking to a coworker before coming to take our order. The food wasn't the best or tasty. The alcoholic beverage was meh.... Nothing exciting or anything that I would ever care to order again. To top it all off, the waiter forgot my daughter's iced tea. He apologized and asked if she still wanted one, she respectfully declined and asked for the ck. I don't think I'll going to visit there again.

Waited over 30min just to receive our drinks. We ordered the pork chop & had to send it back to the kitchen twice due to it being uncooked in the center. The chef did come out personally to apologize and took the pork chop off the bill.

We had a wonderful server William who assisted us. I would give him 10 stars. The food was tasty, though everyone’s orders were not exactly as requested.

My slight annoyance is regarding our request to dine outdoors. We arrived as they opened and it seems many of the wait staff had not arrived. We even had someone ask the manager if we could be seated outdoors and were told no. As we were eventually seated behind the hostess, she then proceeds to seat the next party outdoors! And seemed confused by our annoyance.

We had just sat down and had not ordered as yet. We were sitting right behind her. She could have shared with us that outdoor seating is now available. I would suggest better communication going forward.

Service was horrible. It took forever to get food and drinks. The waitress didn’t come back to check on the table. Two of the orders we’re screwed up. My friend had a fork that was bent and could have injured her while she ate.

Both bar and food service were really slow and it was maybe 50% full. Our wait service was simply put, not warm. Food was ok. Would not go back anytime soon or recommend to anyone.

When my family and I originally walked into the restaurant, The lady at the desk told us we are only taking reservations and we are booked for the day. I walk out booked a table and walked back in they were not booked and she did not apologize, also they took the family after us and they did not have a reservation. However the appetizers and drinks were great. Our waiter was nice. The entrees were okay a little bland but the atmosphere made up for the lack of. Overall it was okay.

Very slow on drinks and I had feathers on my chicken and they didn’t do anything to resolve it but just take the meal off. I didn’t get a discount or nothing for that disgusting experience. They charged me for the replacement meal. I will never come back here again.

Food , service terrible. Bartender was not aware of customers at bar, waited 20 minutes for drink. Only 4 other people at bar. Manager was just wandering around. Ordered raw bar oysters full of shells. Then realized they also " accidently" charged me for other oysters. When we ordered dinner and got check, i realized gratuity was included. Never mentioned by server. Just a terrible experience overall. We had tried when it fist opened and experience was bad, thought we would give it another shot, my mistake. Would not recommend

Waited 45 minutes for a crab cake Benedict that had HARD BOILED eggs on it. Lol place is a joke, excuse the manager gave was that it was “transition time from brunch to evening menus”. I forgot you forget how to cook after a certain time.
