Not good for celiacs, wait staff are not familiar with the ingredients on the menu, I didn't feel confident they knew whether or not something contained gluten and this is awful for people with allergies. They do not offer any gluten or grain free alternatives. Waiter wasn't attentive which was surprising with more than half the tables removed!

Thank you very much for your honest feedback and we certainly apologize for any shortfall during your visit to our restaurant. We do offer a separate gluten free menu and hope that those selections were sufficient for you, but we would like to learn more about your experience so we can take the proper measures to follow up. We will be reaching out via direct message shortly. Thank very much you for your time.

First, we absolutely loved the food. It tasted outstanding. I loved the drinks as well. A fun and refreshing variety of cocktails. Our server was kind and helpful. Absolutely no complaints. I wouldn’t necessarily call it a great value, however, it wasn’t overly expensive. It was a little noisy, however, there was a live band so that is to be expected. The ambience left much to be desired. Though the food is amazing, the drinks are great, the service is also great, it feels like a restaurant that would be inside of a casino, and I don’t necessarily mean that in a good way. However, overall I absolutely recommend the restaurant.

The food was good, except for the breading on the seafood. I had to peel it all off. The value was ok except for I only received 2 pieces of halibut, three would be more reasonable, and the wedge salad had very very little lobster or crab to justify $20. Other than that... great view, great service, great drinks.

First time here for the buffet. It was far bigger that we expected, great variety, we will return again. I wish they offered unlimited champagne for an additional cost verses by the glass

Line & Lure
Responded on March 6, 2020

Linda, thank you very much for your comments and 5-star review! Unfortunately, the unlimited sparkling wine option poses a high level of liability in serving responsibly and many of our competitors have chosen to avoid that as an option as well for that reason. With that in mind, we intentionally keep the price of mimosas low at $5 per glass in hopes of preserving a value in this area. We hope to see you again very soon and thank you for your feedback!

service was ok, bartender was also our server. the bacon was very greasy, the last few slices were just soaking in a layer of grease. The hand towels provided should have been at least warm.
the drink menu has a mimosa listed. we noticed another table had a bottle and some orange juice. we had to ask for that. maybe should be listed on the menu or at least offered when being served
For the price, it was ok.

They seated us promptly and the wait staff greeted us soon after being taken to our table. We placed our order and when it arrived our waitress notified us that one of our meals had become over cooked (burnt) and they were remaking it and that we wouldn’t be charged for the meal. That to me was very good customer service!! We will be back to enjoy another delicious meal!

the staff was friendly and we got seated right away, with our reservation. It was disappointing because The food was always out when we went to go get some. The staff seemed to have a hard time keeping it replenished. They never had butter for the crab when we were there they said they were trying to melt it because it was in a large cube. when we went to get crab they only put a handful out at a time, and what they were placing out was small and didn't taste that fresh. The desserts ran out about 2PM and you were open until 3PM they only had some cupcakes left. It seemed like they were not replenishing item quick to save on the food they were serving. I did like the wrapped steel head it was very good, but the staff said to get some now because they were not sure if more was going to be coming out? in all, the food that was out tasted good just didn't like to wait for 20 minutes for more bacon.

You pay $38 per person and still have to pay for non alcoholic drinks. Adds another $4 to price. Then add in 15% tip $6.50. Total per person $48.50. Not worth it.

Line & Lure
Responded on February 23, 2020

Thank you very much for sharing your feedback with us. We have discussed the possibility of not charging for non-alcoholic drinks, but are reluctant to raise the buffet price, as the variety of seafood that we offer warrants the $38 price. If we can further discuss this with you, we would love the chance to make things right for you, as your value perception is very important to us. Please feel free to call the restaurant to speak with a manager and we will look forward to hearing from you.

I am of an older generation and find going out to a nice dinner less than exciting. I am able to afford
places with these kind of prices, but its not on my list of favorite things. My income stopped growing more than 10 years ago, but the prices have not. I would have taken this money and purchased a fine dinner , taken it home and fixed it for my wife and had a nice bottle of wine to go along with it. and put
the other $ 50 dollars to a better use. Unfortunetly I was out voted 1 to 1
