Would have preferred our waiter to wear his mask. All other servers had them on.
Service was a little slow for a Monday night.Food was good but little pricey for the quantity.

I had the grilled salmon which was delicious. The Brussels sprouts starter was so very good! Only problem I had was the parking exit which would not take payment so the lady behind us scanned her hotel card to get the gate up. We would've had to have four cars back up to turn around.

we are transient boaters and are here for a week. The service we received was exemplary . The halibut was prepared to perfection spicy and moist. The portion size was excellent and definitely a place we will eat at again.

Good atmosphere, service was good convenient to get to. Prices were not cheap but same as most high end places to dine. I ordered swordfish which was the special, but it was overdone and not as tasty as it should have been very disappointing for a high price meal. Would not order fish if i go back. Enjoy the amenities and the casual bars but be careful what you order

Great view... Horrible food, horrible service. Waiter kept forgetting which table ordered what. Tried to take our dinner order 3x, forgot our drinks (we went to the bar ourselves) when dinner did arrive over an hour and 15 after being seated. One order was burned and the other wasn't cooked all the way through. Hands down the worst meal and experience I've had on this trip, and easily worst experience in years at a restaurant

Went for dinner last night, if I could, I would give it a 10 star review. Service was spot on, with our server giving us a heads up regarding the wine, he was attentive and funny. We both ordered the swordfish special, swordfish on a bed of creamy cheese orzo topped with a summer squash ratatouille. Excellent!!! Finished off with a nice piece of yummy cheesecake.

This restaurant was a convenient walk from patriot’s point and was really the only restaurant over there. However, the food was mediocre and the drinks were awful. My husband’s chips were stale. My shrimp roll was 5 shrimp with a little mayo on a piece of wonder bread. Thankfully I upgraded and got the fries - the best part of the meal. The prices were about what you’d expect for a tourist trap. The wait staff were very sweet though.

She crab soup was outstanding. However, they didn’t have the crab cake sandwich as shown on their website. It was was one of the reasons I went there.

We had been wanting to go to the fish house so when friends came in for the weekend it was perfect timing! The location can’t be beat with a breathtaking view of the Yorktown Aircraft Carrier. The restaurant itself was lovely, open and nicely decorated. We started with cornbread cooked southern style in the cast iron pan and dripping on top the honey butter. She Crab Soup, Cob Salad with Shrimp, two of us had Salmon and another had scollops! All of it beautifully presented and delicious. Cheesecake with strawberries and a Brownie Sundae for dessert! I highly recommend this wonderful experience in fine dining!

No lobster, no ribeye for the surf and turf, no filets, special raw oysters were extremely small. Service was great.
$109 meal plus $25 tip.
Very disappointed with menu choices. We won't be back.

This place was not all that as it relates to the hype
It was my husband’s birthday and it was very lackluster
I would have loved to been able to view the ship abd the area

The shrimp and grits was thick and there was no sauce like most places in Charleston serve them
The salmon was good seasoning on the crust but no flavor otherwise

We saved this place as our last place to eat before leaving but the first place we went was soooo much better

Ok service very nice , catch of day , Flounder …30 bucks ,,, thin and overcooked the side dish was better than main course, ratatouille. My wife’s salmon was very good,,, Calamari , seemed from frozen 13 bucks , terrible!’ . When eating at a water front restaurant I’m the south and the fish choices are flounder and Salmon ,,,, really come on .

One of the worst dining experiences. Our 35th anniversary and was looking for a nice seafood meal. Oysters were as small as a dime and expensive. My flounder was overcooked. Mushy veggies. My husbands scallops were good. Waiter was constantly apologizing and thanking us for our patience. Would not recommend this place to anyone

My husband and I had brunch here with our daughter and her boyfriend. The view is outstanding and the food was good. We have had better service at this restaurant, but it could have been because they were about to close to prepare for dinner. We will be back though!

We came in for the first time to celebrate our anniversary. Just moved here. We were seated in an area where the lights were very dull and didn’t match the other lights. We had a very nice waitress and she tried her best to make things right. We ordered the gumbo soup and it came with rice and broth - no sausage or shrimp! And, first time it came out it was like warm. It also comes in a very thin soup dish so the quantity is marginal especially for $11 a soup. Our main entrees were good - we had the salmon and shrimp and grits. The soup was taken off which was appreciated but we likely won’t be back. Too many other restaurants to choose from in Charleston/Mt. Pleasant.
