A change in servers during the evening... we were not told about it and the result seemed to delay offering refills on water and beverages. The meal was good, but just took way longer than normal visits. Restaurant was not busy; therefore, slightly unhappy!

Server was good and food was good but when my date and I were walked to our seat we were walk past a few empty tables and placed in the farthest corner after being looked up and down by one of the wait staff. We felt offended and this location will most likely never get my service again.

Food was great, service was great, and atmosphere was great. I thought the price was high. We had no alcohol, no appetizers, and no dessert. We had 2 teas, 2 lunch entrees, and 1 coffee. $102 for 2 people to have lunch on a Thursday.

Food was great but service could have been better. The staff may have been overwhelmed with a convention in town but there is no reason to be asked three times if I had a reservation after checking in and 45 minutes to order food after being seated.

This lobster tail smelt very fishy so it had to be replaced. I tried to use my gift card and it wasn’t allowed per say. Overall I will recommend the restaurant to a friend or family.

Went for their famous Happy Hour. Was not disappointed. Great buck-shuck oysters! Servers were great. Only problem was they needed more help... couldn't keep up with our orders or from other tables.

The chain is an upscale version of surf-and-turf chains everywhere, and you certain woodn't go there for anything unusual or unique. The food was good, however.

Amazed at the ambiance upon entering. Friendly service and the food was delectable. Noise level was perfect. Definitely worth the price and I will be returning. Waitress was courteous and constantly checked to see what else we needed.

This restaurant provides excellent food and great service. Prices can be a little high. General food service is great but bar service is unbearably slow. It took 10 to 15 minutes to get a simple whisky and water from the bar. This is not the first time this has happened. It a wart on an otherwise great restaurant.

I ordered the seafood trio, and everything was overcooked. The salmon tasted like dry chicken, and the potatoes like paste. My husband's crab was dry, cold, and overcooked

On today I had reservations for a party of 10 and the service was very slow. I'm a regular customer at this location and was really dissatisfied by the service and the quality of the food. Some of the food was over done. The waiter service was slow and she did not regularly come back to check the status of the table. I am a Landry's Select member and at the time of payment I provided my Landry's info however my ticket was not added to my Landry's Select account.

After today's visit it will be a while before I return. I was truly disappointed and felt embarrassed about my recommendation for the place because I invited guests.

Business lunch perfection. What a great place downtown for a business lunch. I recommend making a reservation=-it was crowded! I had the fried shrimp and french fries. The french fries were delish! Crispy on the outside and tender inside. My guest had the salmon and he said it was very good. The acoustics for having a business meeting was excellent - not too loud. I will add this to my business lunch rotation.

My wife and I went in today (12/31/18) at 3:00pm and the establishment was not busy. Out of all my visits to this location, service was horrible. Waiter was not helpful and I had to let another waiter know that we were ready to order. No drink refills and when we were asked l, they were never brought to us. This establishment has no excuses on why they had poor service. I will be keeping away from this establishment for a while.

Oysters Rockefeller - ok but nothing special. Papas’ are much better. Iceberg Wedge - excellent. Seared Scallops - outstanding. Lobster Tails - wouldn’t order again there. Filet Mignon - medium rare was perfect. Great flavor. Service - very good. Ambience - the atmosphere was quiet, but the lighting at our table was like a spot light behind my head, which cast a dark shadow over my plate.
