    I truly wish I could rate a 10 star for this place. We absolutely enjoyed our visit and a special thanks to the manager by the name of Marcus for assisting us over the phone finding your place. His directions were precise. He even suggested the red snapper for us to try and it was very delicious. Our bartender was fantastic!! I love the conversations we shared while sitting at bar. Perfect night out with valet at no charge!

    Our server was amazing and the ambiance was great! However, the food was very blah. The red snapper was seasoned very very well; however, it was very small for two people. The macaroni and cheese was pretty good, but the other sides were just okay. The menu has potential, but it is very limited and bland. Overall the restaurant is beautiful with very nice servers, but the food was not the best.

    May have made a poor choice with shrimp and grits. But it’s a fav of mine and Fancy’s didn’t stack up. Had the duck tacos app. It was ok. Would go again but make different selections. Wouldn’t recommend based upon first time.

    This is our second visiting your restaurant and I must say, the hospitality and food is #1. We were greeted by Marcus, which we later found out he was the manager. He made us feel very welcomed. The ambience was so perfect as we were on our weekly date as a married couple. Our server Mary made things even better with suggesting the perfect appetizer(Fried Green Tomatoes) and the Cajun pasta is the best I have ever had. We were given 2 glasses of champagne by the manager after telling him my wife was promoted on her job today and that we were out celebrating. I must tell everyone I know about the food and hospitality of this diamond in the rough restaurant. We will be coming back!

    First time to visit Fancy's! We had a show at the Orpheum to attend, and this was great for pre-show cocktails and heavy apps place on a Sunday night. Bartender made the perfect dirty martini, and our server, Kaelyn, had the best recommendations and timed our food and dessert perfectly in order for us to make it to the show on time. We will definitely come back for another date night! Would recommend using the valet for your car as parking around Fancy's is a nightmare and the garage nearby is expensive, with no elevator access that we could find.

    The location is great, downtown on the river with a very nice view. The service was…not good. Our drinks were given to another table and a number of food and drink items that we’d ordered ended up not being available after all. I hope they sort themselves out as a good seafood restaurant is needed downtown.

    We had an incredible birthday dinner! Kimberly was our server and she was fantastic! Her recommendations were on point… we started off with Oysters on the half shell- Ah-mazing! We then had Shrimp and grits… they had great flavor and it was loaded with lots of shrimp and sausage! I enjoyed the Salmon with rice and deviled egg vinaigrette… wow it was a HUGE portion and was so good I couldn’t stop eating even though I was so full! Another must have was the Crispy Brussels in hot bacon vinaigrette as a side was hands down the best I’ve ever had!!! Last but not least the key lime pie was the perfect to top off a fabulous dinner!

    Food was slightly above average and a bit high priced. Beautiful restaurant and nice ambiance. Service was really slow and disappointing. Would recommend going maybe once or twice a year if you are going to a show at the Orpheum.

    The restaurant was mostly empty on the main floor but about 30-40 people were in the private room. They were so loud we could barely hear our table conversation The doors to the private room weren’t closed The redfish was dense Server was very good

    Overpriced. Crab cakes were not good. Crab stuffed hush puppies were free of crab and bland. Filet was tender but not super flavorful. Mashed potatoes and Brussel sprouts were amazing. Service was average. The restaurant is very clean and attractive.

    The fish was delicious. I wasn’t too fun of the tomato’s this time (they were kind of tart) unlike my previous visit, they tasted way better . But the cocktails are awesome as always. My favorite cocktail is the Blueberry Lemon Drop!!!

    We enjoyed our dinner on the patio. The food is average. Service is slightly below average. The price of entrees are reasonable. However, when a restaurant is serving food at this price range I expect service to be much better.

    Nice place. We'll be going again for sure. Super clean, nice decor, comfortable atmosphere, good service and acceptable noise levels (though we went when it was not crowded). I had the raw bar seafood tower (small). A few things were still borderline frozen and needed like 15 minutes to fully thaw to be eaten. But better than the alternative. My wife had the excellent crab cakes. Despite the name of the restaurant, there were a couple non fish options on the menu too for people who don't like fish. A bit expensive, especially when Pearl's is nearby, but the ambaince and view here are much nicer.

    Came here for dinner last night while on vacation. Our first server was clueless. Asked us if we wanted dessert when we didn't even have our entrees. So manager took over. Lobster bisque, crab cakes and grouper were fine, but nothing stood out. Banana gelato icy.

    The fish and chips were ok. The manager did not bring the extra sauce that I requested which was a little surprising. The good came out quickly. The Brussels sprouts were really good. The waiter was very attentive.

    No wine list to add peak of - and by 7 pm they had run out of what our guests ordered. Perhaps it was just a Saturday night but while the salmon was ok, the risotto had no taste and a devilled egg vinaigrette should not be made ever. Our guests rated the shrimp and grits and oyster salad only fair. However the wait staff was very good and realized when the drunks at the bar were crowding our table they moved them to another side. We will not return.
