As usual the food was special. We missed Michael since he is off on Monday or Tuesday.

We had a guest who asked 3 times about not having onions in the dish. It arrived with onions The Brussels sprouts, a menu staple was way over salted. But everything else was perfect. It is still my go to place.

There were some positives to Marsh House: The oyster selection was very good and I wish I had tried the raw bar since, based on the oysters, the fresh, unadulterated seafood would have been my best bet. The breads and pastries were exceptional. The service was professional, friendly, and did just the right amount of hovering.

If you are into very heavy, buttered, and oily foods this is likely a really good spot. We shared several dishes: the Brussels were promising. The top layer had great flavor and the sprouts weren't overcooked. The closer we got to the bottom of the serving, the more oily an inedible the dish became and we didn't finish them. The Shrimp Toast was, again, very heavily buttered and the texture was spongy. The barbecue shrimp should have been really good, but, again, it dish was overwhelmed with butter, but at least it was edible.

We split Caesar salads and the romaine was way overdressed and totally covered up the taste of the greens. For dinner, we did the grilled mahi, snapper courtbouillon, and fried chicken. The mahi was pretty good mainly because it wasn't over seasoned and the accompanying wild rice salad had a nice sweet and sour thing going on. The courtbouillon was oily with a somewhat bland tomato sauce and the rice was so oily and the butter taste almost seemed artificially enhanced. The fried chicken was good--very tender with a crisp coating despite a heavy honey sauce. The pickled peppers added just the right amount of heat; however, the honey really was the main taste. The red beans and rice were more like bacon and rice and very heavy. The accompanying biscuit, though was excellent--beautifully crisp on the outside and about 1,000 layers of light and perfectly baked seasoned dough on the inside. This was definitely the highlight of the meal.

We celebrated our 22nd anniversary here recently and loved the experience. We talked to a manager ahead of our meal as I have food allergies. The chef worked with me to create a memorable meal for the evening and it was delicious! The waitress was terrific and she was quite attentive to our needs. We would recommend the duck and gumbo. The rabbit pasta dish was good too. Just different and my husband wished their was more meat.

We also had lunch here earlier in the day--had no idea it was the same place until we arrived for dinner. But worth it both times. Lunch was more simple fare, but hit the spot. I enjoyed the burger and my husband like the duck hash.

We made a reservation for new years eve. There was no mention of limited pre fix menu online when we checked the website earlier that day. when we arrived there was a pre fix menu and we could not order what we came in for. All the prices were super jacked up. We moved to the bar to finish our drinks, paid a premium for oysters, got our check and went nearby for mexican since it was too late to make another reservation before the show we wanted to catch.

The food and drinks were very good. The service was excellent and not intrusive. The restaurant was beautiful. I do have one complaint. If I am paying $400 for dinner for my family, I am truly put off by having to pay $8 for my car to be valeted. That is just poor taste. Every good restaurant in town has complimentary valet parking. Likely it is added into the price of the meal at other places but to have to pay to valet the car after paying a premium price for the meal just doesn't sit well for me. Again I enjoyed the restaurant but I just think they are being cheap with the valet.

I had Sunday brunch with my girlfriends. We enjoyed the "breakfast boozes" and the food was excellent. We had the brussel sprouts and barbecue shrimp for appetizers and both were amazing. Three of us also had oysters and the presentation was beautiful and the oysters were wonderful. Two of us had Shrimp & Grits and two had the Cavatelli Etouffee. While the shrimp & grits were very good, the etouffee was absolutely delicious. The scallops were cooked perfectly. We really enjoyed our service as well, he was funny and attentive.

Overall experience was ok. We stayed at the hotel so it was easy. The food was just so-so. We both ordered a Filet. All tho' one came warm and the other came cold. It was also already cut up! At end the of all that, we got a big fat bill. Probably was not go back for dinner. Breakfast was awesome!!!

The food, especially the seafood, was terrific! Super fresh and perfectly done. Our servers were great. Very hip crowd and good-looking, modern decor. This could so easily be a good romantic date spot, except for the weird lighting, which seemed cold and unflattering (were those flourescent bulbs?) and the noise level, which made it necessary to speak very loudly just be be heard at my own table. Still a great place to go with friends, and I look forward to trying the patio when the weather is warmer.

this was our first visit and it was Sunday Night. We were greeted warmly/ We liked the wide variety of menu options. Our waiter was knowledgeable and friendly and we had a lovely time. IT's a bit pricey for just an average going out type dinner, but great for a get together or a special occasion.

Fantastic Thanksgiving prix fixe dinner. Even though known as a seafood restaurant, the turkey dinner was amazing, as well as the filet mignon. Fried oysters and the fried brussel spouts delicious appetizers, chocoloate mousse dessert fantastic, though the pecan pie and pumpkin pie less so. Overall, wonderful experience with waiters, the space, and the ambience.
