The food was explained to us differently than we expected. So when my wife’s food arrived it was not what she was expecting but otherwise it was great.

Jakob was an awesome server! Made my daughter feel special on her birthday and the bread pudding was unbelievable! The flounder was the best I've ever had.

Overall very good. Service a little slow. Waiter was fairly new so he was working hard to provide us with an enjoyable evening. Our consent was that he would do fine after a couple weeks. Food was served hot and overall very good little too much salt on my snapper.
Our party of four enjoyed the evening.

It was a nice place to go for the first time but not somewhere I will go back to often. I just expected better flavors. Some of it was good and some had hardly any flavor. The staff was wonderful and we did enjoy celebrating my husbands birthday with them but just not super impressed with the food

Warm greeting upon arrival, table was ready at reservation time, and enjoyed learning about the history of the restaurant. Waitress was friendly and explained the menu (specials) to us. Champagne tasted flat (as if opened a day before) and waitress replaced with another beverage. Placed order and food was served by very nice staff. Our waitress was very busy with other tables and did not see her very often. Waited 20 minutes for dessert order, which was taken by a very nice gentleman who was waiting on another table next to us, and we had to have another staff person to get our check for us so that we could leave. We had a pleasant experience, not sure what happened to our waitress (hope she was just too busy for us ), and left feeling unsure if we will return in the future.

For the price, the food was nothing special. Lettuce not that fresh, Chicken on the salad was tough. Service was very slow even though they were not crowded.

They are just top rate. When I reserved a table online for a birthday I requested a table close to an entrance due to mobility issue. The restaurant called me to direct us to an alternate entrance in advance of our arrival. The food never disappoints and the service delightful.

New Year’s Eve dinner is always a special occasion and why not a champagne and lobster dinner to spark off a new 365 days? The food was beautifully prepared and absolutely delicious.

Our waiter was a sweetheart who checked on us often, yet, respectfully did not intrude.

Love, love Katrina’s waterline noted in our dining area. Least we ever dare to forget.

You must start with the soft shell crab appetizer. It is to die for. Any fish entree is outstanding and off the page. Our favorites are the speckled trout and the flounder. Cocktails are delicious and irresistible. Mary Mahoney’s is the destination for the special events in your life. We have never been disappointed.
