Food was fantastic
Service was so so
Noise level was too loud to have a conversation.
Price point expensive, with Alcohol very over priced.

Would have to think twice before returning, due to the poor service, and the noise level.

Cold fish. Salad was drenched in dressing. And seemed like they were out of many dishes that were offered on the menu.

New Fall menu is tremendous. Everything is made in-house, including the craft cocktails. Consistently excellent food and service. If you are able to request Martell as your server, you will not be disappointed. He makes the dining experience that much better!

Fabulous experience with outstanding food. The crab cakes and burnt end toast were so flavorful. My fiance had the strip steak and he said “it was the best steak he ever had”. The spices and sauce on it were delicious. I had the sea bass. The champagne risotto was spectacular although the sea bass left a bit to be desired flavor wise. Overall would highly recommend.

Food was delicious, our first time there. Our server was less than attentive. We got the feeling he really didn’t want to be there by a few comments. Asked several times if we had any questions, but couldn’t seem to answer when asked. We will however most definitely come back. He may have been having a bad day🤷🏼‍♀️

My dining experience was wonderful, though, in my honest opinion, the Surf offering delicious combinations of fruits and meats that truly complemented each other. The alcoholic drinks were absolutely wonderful as well, especially the chocolate martini that is offered as a nightcap. Overall, my family's experience was truly wonderful and we would definitely come back; just not for the Surf & Turf.

The food was delicious and the service outstanding. Our waiter Colin, I believe, was attentive and knowledgeable and offered me the special bourbon list when he saw we were discussing the bourbon selection.

Excellent and imaginative cuisine. The burnt ends were as good if not better then my favorite BBQ joint. The Caesar salad was outstanding and the duck was great. Combine that with great service and bar and it made for a great night out.

Excellent meal. One of the best scallop dishes I’ve ever had. The service was a little slow, but we understand there is a staffing shortage. The risotto was another favorite of our groups.

Our server, Sheri, came quickly to our table, gave us a nice overview of the beverages available, then brought out our water. Gave us suggestions for drinks, took our order after explaining the specials of the day. The asparagus soup was outstanding, and the duck special was some of the best I have ever had! Our server continued to take care of us long after our meal was over and we had paid the check (we hadn't talked to each other in a while). Over all a great experience. Ask for Sheri!!!

The bisque soup of the day on two occasions has been absolutely outstanding. The Caesar and summer salads were delicious. I loved the crab cakes. The New York strip steak special had an excellent exterior, yet the flavor did not permeate all the way through. However, the steak sides (potatoes and asparagus) exploded with flavor. An EXCELLENT date spot when there are few in our area for ambiance, often live music, and wonderful flavor blends which made me nod and comment with nearly every bite in satisfaction.

My companion and I enjoyed our evening. The service was outstanding, as were the crab cake appetizers. My dinner, the beef tenderloin, was also outstanding. My companion ordered the duck breast, which was extremely chewy and almost inedible. But for the duck which, in retrospect, we should have sent back, I would have given the experience 5 stars.
