Service was terrible. Waited 45 minutes for a beer. Clearly understaffed no management in sight to help. Tables all around us remained dirty. At least 9. Tables Watched people get up and leave because no service. Not sure why we didn’t walk out. Food was decent once we got it Unfortunately I won’t go back.

The food was pretty good but the restaurant did not have sufficient staff to keep up with the reservations. Drinks (one cocktail, two beers, one glass of wine) took about 25 minutes to come out and arrived moments before the salads. Location is nice and the staff were trying but it's pretty clear no owners were working that night. Table next to us gave up and left. Will give it another shot but only after trying a few other places and definitely not on an empty stomach.

First time eating at this restaurant last night and I did like the menu. I ordered the wings, collards, and tried the French onion soup. I found the wings overly salted, don't get me wrong, I love flavor but, the we're nothing but salt and ginger. The greens did not have taste and lacked smokiness and depended too much on the tasso ham for flavor. The soup was muddled and filled with more croutons than onions. The only thing that I liked was the apple slaw, simple and flavorful. Our waitress appeared to forget about us as we watched her talked for a while to another table outside. We would have loved a refill but our waitress was busy networking. We did like the ambiance and the spacing of where customers were seated. The others servers were on a mission to please their customers. I am not sure that I would try this establishment again. The family is undecided at this time.

Seafood pasta was dry…we had to search the menu to find something that could be put over it and then request it from the server as they didn’t offer any suggestions. Also, asked for well-done on steak and no mushrooms…medium well and lots of mushrooms. Otherwise, it was enjoyable.

Made a reservation and was seated upon arrival. There were several empty tables so it did not seem very busy. It was several minutes before our waiter arrived to take our drink order and that should have been our signal to exit. The table next to us while he was there asked about their soup order so he then went to check on that for them. A few minutes later they received their soup but our drinks took a while. Then, it was the great wait for our appetizer, the crab dip, followed by the very long wait for our entrees. Meanwhile, the couple next to us, having finished their soup and waiting for their entrees, asked the waiter to cancel their order because it was taking so long. While to food was okay and the waiter somewhat apologetic, I would not return.

The place is nice and we were seated quickly. It took over 30 minutes to receive our appetizer and that was after we asked what was taking so long. The server said he would check and proceeded to go to the server kiosk and put in our order. I asked for a manager who said that she would "take care of it" and said that they were short staff so that's why it was taking so long. Other tables were seated after us and had their appetizer and meal before we did. I asked the server what the hold up was since other tables were served already. His response what that some orders just take longer than others especially when he enters them for some reason. Whatever that means. In the end our bill was much higher than expected because my wife had asked to switch meats on one of their salads. There is a salad with tuna and a salad with steak on the menu within $1 price. She wanted the salad ingredients from the salad with tuna except to use steak as the meat. Our bill came out with a $31 salad!

First time there. Server could have been more attentive; but she seemed to have tables on the other side of the restaurant.

My sandwich came on a tray with paper lining; (I am not a fan). I would have asked for a plate if the server had been more visible.

The atmosphere is very pleasing; the food is good; reasonably priced. The Creme Brûlée is wonderful.

Staff was very friendly but a little bit slow. Perhaps need a little bit of training— things like removing empty glasses when they bring you a new drink, make sure you have appetizer plates etc.

Sunday evening treat for retired mid sixties folk.
Pros: food & service great & we enjoy the interiors, furniture, decor, space & seating
Cons:
AC & fan too high. I nearly froze & my husband returned to the car to get a linen jacket for himself
Music seemed increasingly louder & annoying & difficult to talk over as the dinner progressed. Wish you’d play some soft jazz geared towards our age group sometimes, instead of always the teen pop stuff probably enjoyed by your youthful staff. By the time we got to the end of our entrees we were anxious to leave rather than do dessert.
We used to enjoy going to Szechuan Kungfu12 because they played tasteful relaxing classic jazz at a comfortable decibel level such that conversation was always easy.

Food delicious, but service slow. Did not seem to be fault of waiter who was attentive , but because of possible delays in kitchen. Perhaps short staffed due to pandemic. Menu much more limited than last time we got food from them . For example no crab cakes or rockfish, and fish items seemed limited for a restaurants that specializes in seafood.

I was highly surprised that none of single employee was wearing a mask nor was there any signs asking patrons to wear a mask when entering. I was also surprised that the restaurant was mostly empty but yet they decided to sit us next to a party of four. And there were people in that party of four coughing. The food was all right, not as good as what I was expecting it to be. Since this restaurant emphasizes the Chesapeake Bay watershed area, they did not have any crabs or crab cakes on the menu. Service was a little slow but I think they only had two waiters working the entire restaurant from what it looked like. Even though I cannot get a reservation at 6:30, we arrived at 6:00 to sit at the bar and most of the restaurant was empty but we were not allowed to get our seat until 6:45.
