    Our waitress was outstanding. Her name was Mandy. My food was great. I enjoyed the entire experience, but I would have to say the soup of the day and the dessert were my favorite parts. That strawberry shortcake was absolutely amazing. My best friend and I both left happy.

    Food was great, as usual, but they are severely understaffed. It took 15 minutes for a server to first approach our table and 20 minutes to get a drink. A sign of the times

    Great dinner, but they were out of many menu items. We had an 8pm reservation so it was just past prime time. They were out of lime juice so they couldn’t make the special margarita I wanted to order. The Greyhound was a good substitute. Then they were out of all bread products, risotto, and crab cakes. I go there for the fish and risotto so I was very disappointed. The steak cooked perfectly and the arugula salad was great. Overall it was a good meal just challenging to order.

    Still seem logistically challenged. Second visit in a row where they ran out of sourdough bread. This visit they ran out of their vegetable of the day (broccoli) and substituted a vegetable with meat (without our knowledge) but my wife is pescatarian so they had to substitute again. We also believe that they substituted tilapia for the flounder. We will be back but not on a weekend and maybe they can handle things better.

    Sat for 20 minutes with no acknowledgement from wait staff - no water, no hello, just nothing. People seated at table next to us who came 20 minutes after us were greeted and taken care of by 2 waiters within 3 minutes of being seated and received their food before we did. Food was not seasoned well and took a long time to come out. Restaurant was not crowded and other patrons seemed to be having a better experience than I did, so not sure why I was singled out for poor service.

    Charged for bread and butter that should be free. Runny and bland crawfish etouffe. Crawfish chowder and crab cakes were acceptable but not worth price.
