Another great dining experience. Thank you, Chris, for your exceptional demeanor. You welcome us by name each time we dine and do so much to make our evening a great experience.
Also, kudos to Rex, our server. He is a gem and a genuinely sweet and kind young man. He does an excellent job.
Already looking forward to returning.

This was our 5th year wedding anniversary and our first night out since having the baby. They made it truly special and even gave us a dessert on them. We will definitely be going back soon!

Everything was ordinary. Broccoli was undercooked, so I sent it back, but it was shriveled up from microwave when returned (still undercooked). Orzo under salmon was bland. Didn't honor Landrys card because they are no longer associated with them.

We had a really poor experience. It took forever to get drinks, even just bread. We also waited a long time for our meals and were just sitting around waiting eventhough the restaurant wasn't even busy. They didn't have any of the oysters that were listed on the menu. The salmon rigatoni was super dry and tasteless, and had very little salmon in it (with the skin still on eventhough it was a "pasta" dish). The waitress did comp us for that dish, however. The mahi mahi with andouille mash potatoes was alright, but had a lot of butter. We didn't even bother to stay for dessert since the dessert menu was so sparse - no creme brulee as advertised. They didn't have any of the meals or the three-course thing that was on the menu on the website. The whole experience was pretty disappointing. It was rather expensive too for what it was worth.

We've always enjoyed our dinners here but yesterday was a major disappointment.
Our waiter was pleasant but everything was extremely slow. We arrived at 530 and did not get our dinners until approximately 7PM. It took forever for the server to come and take our orders and then a very long time until we received our food. Because we saw him so infrequently, beverage refills were slow as was anything that we requested. We skipped dessert so that we did not stay any longer. By the time we got the check and departed it was 745. It's not like we lingered over dinner the wait was all prior to that!
We will not be returning!

Our server couldn't explain some of the entree ingredients. One of our guests modified her order and when the food arrived it was not what the server explained. We ordered an appetizer that wasn't available, but I had to point out to him on the bill that we didn't get it so he could adjust the bill.

Service was exceedingly slow, even though the restaurant was not very busy. This is not the first time I have experienced very slow service at this location. We were comped our drinks, and provided 2 free desserts....however, this did not particularly make up for the experience.

The food was excellent! Would definitely go back for the food. However, the service was very slow and lacking in personality. It was not busy when we were there so we feel the service should not have been so slow. The hostess asked after 5 minutes if anyone helped us and we said no, she said that she would get him because he was standing over there talking.

Our meal was delicious. It would have been helpful to know how very large the salad was. Too much for a salad course. The bar was very noisy and very close to where we were dining it was difficult to hear at times. We will come back because the food preparation and service was excellent.

We came here for my 30th birthday dinner. They had printed Happy Birthday on the menu which was a nice touch. The food was amazing, and we were here fairly early on a Monday and pretty much had the whole place to ourselves.

A "go to" restaurant for my wife and me. Excellent food was expected and delivered. A cordial greeting was followed by the excellent service of Molly.

The greatest indecision rests in choosing the food since I have never had a bad experience at M&S. I look forward to my next visit to M&S, which will be soon.

Food was excellent. We went there to celebrate two birthdays and we thoroughly enjoyed the dinners. I had the crab cakes, 2 people had the parmesan crusted flounder and one had the fish and chips and everyone enjoyed the food. We also had the lobster bisque and that was delicious. We will visit when we have another special occasion.

Food was good - things were chaotic though. We had a 6pm reservation and were not taken until 1 hour later which was difficult with a large party because the bar was jam packed, and we had 2 children. I do understand a reservation can run over, however, an hour is excessive. An appetizer offering was provided upon us being seated at the table, however, it just really put a damper on our experience at the restaurant.

Poor, inattentive service. The stuffed shrimp was so small, it could only hold less than a teaspoon of stuffing. Food was lukewarm. Asked for a cup of coffee and the coffee cup was filled half full.
