                                                This was quite disappointing. While the service was fine, the food was quite poor. There was nothing special about the meal and the food was ordinary, at best. I would not return to this restaurant again.

                                                Food was what you would expect from a resort restaurant, overpriced just a little for what you receive, but adequately prepared. Service was outstanding, view was terrific. I would go back. The one item that stood out was the creamed corn that came with the scallops. The absolute best I have ever had.

                                                I found the food to be quite expensive for the quality. I had the half pound peel and eat shrimp and it was very tough and tasteless (overcooked?). We had asked to be seated by a window but were not.

                                                This is a special spot that everyone should try when in Mount Pleasant or at the resort. You’ll have a lovely view of the water with the USS Yorktown, as well as the Ravenel Bridge. They always have fresh seafood to try as well as excellent cocktails and wine. The fried chicken with hot honey and grits is a must try!

                                                Disappointing. Let me first say I rarely write a review of anything either good or bad. So, know this was not a good experience. We had a reservation and we were early. We offered to wait at the bar, but they seated us right away. I’d eaten here several times in the past and it had been good. Wanted to show the view of Charleston from that vantage point to a friend on a first visit to Charleston and enjoy a good meal. I was surprised when our server delivered water in plastic cups, but ignored that. But when our $15 cocktails came to us in plastic cups, I asked why and was told they were out of glasses. As far as I’m concerned, that’s not okay for a restaurant with a number of entrees in the $40 range. The $30 shrimp and grits I ordered weren’t awful, but they weren’t great either. The shrimp wax cooked just right, but in spite of some sauce, the grits were absolutely tasteless. As the evening continued. I noticed other guests were getting their drinks in regular glassware. So, they had no glasses clean when we arrived. Maybe they were short staffed, but a dishwasher isn’t all that time Consuming to load and run. I’ve eaten at many different types of restaurants from 5 star to dive-last nights experience was 3 star at best. And when your bill for 2 dinners and 2 drinks is over $100 not including tip, that’s not okay.

                                                Food was good, service average. Nice location however, sun beats in on every seat in the afternoon/evening. No shades or places to sit where it's not directly on you. No fans and not well ventilated. Bring sunglasses and plan on being uncomfortably warm.

                                                Good service. Poor menu. Poor selections. The online menu was very different from the one page paper menu given to us at our table. Cost of food was too high for what was included in the entree. Tiny cup of hot tea was nearly $5. I would not recommend Mother’s Day or any Sunday because the brunch selection is very poor.

                                                Was disappointed with menu options which were limited and did not include the She Crab Soup which my mom had requested specifically for Mother's Day. When our food did arrive, one of the items was not as described on the menu. It wasn't awful - just not great. Our servers seemed to be doing the best they could but tea was delivered with no ice. The table had no salt & pepper or sweeteners. No flowers or other nice touches that I would expect at this price point on Mother's Day. The restaurant was loud and while I understand it was Mother's Day so lots of kids where dining out with families it definitely didn't have the "nice restaurant" feel that I was hoping for. I would not return to this restaurant.

                                                The host wasn’t very welcoming, we were given one brunch menu to share amongst ourselves. No drink menu or silverware included. There wasn’t a line of people waiting at the door so I don’t know what the rush was for. Our waitress did promptly bring us water which was great, we asked for a drink menu and silverware. A drink menu was brought to us. She came back and took our drink and food order. Food was brought some time later, still no silverware and still no drinks (besides the water). I ordered the French toast, it was absolutely delicious. For my drink I got a peppermint mocha coffee (alcoholic), it was pretty disappointing between size and lack of whip cream that was suppose to come on top especially since the small 8oz cup size is $12. Mind you, drink prices are not on the menu so tread carefully. To sum up there are many other great places to go out for brunch, I have no aspirations to come back here. Simply put, it was meh.

                                                The food was fantastic. We were disappointed in the service. Although our server approached us as soon as we sat down, it took at least 15 minutes before she returned to even take our drink and appetizer order. We waited a long time for all services. But the food and the view from our table were fantastic!

Our server was outstanding and her advice resulted in our ordering very enjoyable meals. We will recommend this restaurant to others in the future.

                                                Our waitress was very curt and abrupt- We had to ask for lemon wedges, salt and pepper, second drink which took FOREVER- and there was no sav blanc- But got a glass upstairs later ?? My friend ordered the fish of the day and it was good but the cold “salad” accompaniment was not worth the high price. Better sides need to go with the expensive entree. And our waitress said with 5 people you really have to do 1 check. Been there many times and have never had to do that. We were getting ready to leave, but she said she’d check. We had separate checks but it was uncomfortable.

                                                Food was not well prepared...possibly kitchen and floor understaffed. Our waiter was serving large groups working his tail off. Over an hour to get our food. The view and ambiance was great.

                                                We ordered the pimento cheese and it came with pork rinds. The combination was strange. The food was good/average. The restaurant is pretty and the view of the harbor was nice. It felt strange that the bathrooms were located outside for it to be a yacht club.

                                                I want to be considerate of the fact that many restaurants are short-staffed. Maybe this was the case during our visit, but I don't know. It was not that busy with patrons. What I do know is that we had zero contact for 30 minutes after being seated. At that point I retrieved paper menus from the hostess and told her no one had addressed us. She apologized and said she would let them know. 10 minutes later still no attention. So I stopped a waitress who was cleaning the table next to us. I asked if she was our server. She said, "um" then looked around (as though looking for our server) and said "I can help you". We placed our drink order and food order together (hey, would she come back?). Then we waited 45 minutes for our food. The food for 3 of us we rated from fair to good. I was the only one who liked my order. Hubby described his ham as tasteless, except the pepper they applied as though they were trying hard to make it flavorful. Didn't see a manager. Don't plan to return.

                                                The food was okay but very expensive. The Caesar salad was tasty. The fried shrimp were over cooked. The soup was too think. You could eat it with a fork. Drinks were very expensive. The wait staff was nice but it appears they don’t have enough employees. It’s a nice place to go for a drink and look out over the harbor and the Battleship. But food. Not so much.

                                                Andrienne was the perfect server for our family get together in Charleston. The Blue Point oysters, skillet cornbread and she crab soup were wonderful. Thank You, Andrienne for a wonderful family experience.

                                                Small menu. Very pricey. $50 for surf and turf which was a ribeye and shrimp. $14 for kids chicken strips and fries. And my kid left hungry.
