Food and service were very good. Just expected more of a “shack” atmosphere. Didn’t know it was the hotel’s dining atea.
Our waiter, Hill, was the absolute best part of our time there! So polite and attentive! We went there after reading many very positive reviews, but we’re quite disappointed. Fried shrimp was 7/10 but nothing great. Coleslaw was good. Hush puppies okay but greasy. Clam chowder was tasty, but should have been called cream of potato soup. Cocktails had very little alcohol. Two large margaritas had no effect on me. Would not recommend.
We chose this restaurant because they advertise following the utmost safety and sanitation requirements . However, shortly after getting our drinks a family of seven adults came in , NO MASKS. The host said nothing , they seated them without question. I approached the host and his explanation was he’s new, the manager came over and I explained my concern . I told him that they advertise masks are required and yet nothing was even asked of these people . He apologized that it “slipped” by. But said nothing to the customers about getting up maskless. I do not think it slipped by. I think they don’t practice what they promise. Food was good. But had I known they don’t require masks we wouldn’t have dined here and we definitely won’t be back. Don’t advertise something You aren’t willing to uphold .
We were on vacation and my husband and I had a date night. The restaurant looked amazingly clean. They were short staffed but they were doing their best with what they had. The food was AMAZING!! So good. This has to be a hidden gem. I would highly recommend this place.
We were promptly greeted and seated at a table. Our server was nice, efficient and had a good sense of humor. The food and sauces were good. We had the 50-50 shrimp platters with our choice of 2 different kinds of shrimp. They were advertised on the menu as jumbo shrimp but I was a little disappointed in the size of the shrimp. They were a decent size but not jumbo size.
Tasty and fresh seafood Nantucket style. The fried shrimp was golden with the perfect bite tension and balanced for seasoning. My haddock fish and chips was golden, savory and flaky. I substitute sweet potato tater tots for the French fries, they were awesome. We had fried oysters for the appetizer. They were super tasty, and my 14 year old son who never had an oyster devoured them. For an entree he had the shrimp Caesar salad. He loved it, a my wife tried it and said it was the Cesar Salad dressing that she had ever tasted. all of their dips sauces were excellent. Service excellent, prices very reasonable. This is an old school restaurant located on the side of a Comfort Inn. do not let that discourage you. It is a great place to take a family.
The staff was very friendly. We thought it would be a little nicer. The food was ok.
clean, easy to get to, food above average, ambiance lacking, service good
Food was ok....service was a little too slow for not many people there. I didn’t feel the value in what you paid was worth it!!
Good food. Very clean with attentive wait staff. Fish was a little greasy, but it is fried. I would probably choose a grilled option when I go back.
Maybe we dined on a bad night. The food was decent, when we finally received it. We sat for at least 20 minutes before the first server acknowledged us and took drink and appetizer orders.it was another 20 minutes before the hushpuppies arrived. It was almost exactly an hour before we received our dinners. The crab legs were good as was the assortment of shrimp dishes. My wife had shrimp scampi and she enjoyed it. It was okay but I am amazed at the number of high praises in the reviews. My party of six must have hit them on a very rough night.
Sit back and relaxed place. Casual ,quite ,restaurant everything was good and the mac & cheese just cold in the center ) it would be Much better if music was play and having a larger tv on the wall
Dear manager please get the bar area a larger tv for everyone to enjoy.Other the server was great .
The food was excellent and the prices were reasonable. The atmosphere was nothing special, but it was clean and they are following COVID protocols. I would go back
The food was delicious!
We had a reservation. Stood by hostess desk for 10 min. No one . NO ONE came to seat us.
We saw 3 tables eating. Didn’t see one employee. We finally left. Had to find food somewhere else.
Excellent service ,and the food So good very tasty 😋👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍😢😢😢😢😢😢😢☺️☺️☺️☺️☺️☺️☺️☺️☺️☺️☺️☺️☺️☺️☺️☺️☺️☺️
Do not let the fact it’s attached to a Comfort Inn steer you away. The food and service was fantastic!
Very disappointed with service and having to argue with waiter over Groupon before he called the manager to rectify a situation. Very small portions for price charged
This was a fantastic find, service was great, prices fair and food fantastic. Would definitely recommend!
The food was delicious, My family enjoyed it. We had a great time. Loved the place!
The overall food was very good. Fried crispy without to much heavy batter. Our server was friendly and attentive. The location was simple connected to the lobby of a hotel. Not very fancy but very clean. Our family enjoyed our meal and would return.
Horrible Food and Not Sanitary at all. I would not recommend this place to anyone.
Don't go for the ambience, but do go for amazing food and friendly service! The shrimp tacos, seafood platter and hush puppies were all amazing!
Great food. The best mac n cheese I have ever had. But the staff was exceptional. They even entertained my daughter while waiting for food.
Food was OK but not great. Shrimp was too salty and "jumbo" was somewhat misleading. They weren't "popcorn shrimp", but not all that big. Service was terrible.
Service was among the worst I have had. Should have been forewarned when we walked in at 6:45 on a Friday night and there was no one seated in the restaurant at all. Still, we thought we would give it a try. Wife ordered Jumbo Fried Shrimp and I had the Jumbo Shrimp Trio. Took over 30 minutes to get our food even though the place was empty. Wife's order was OK, but mine was the wrong entree and they left off the sides completely (fries and hushpuppies). Waiter took it back and after another 10-15 minutes brought out my shrimp, but still no fries or hushpuppies. Another 5 or so minutes fries came out. After another 5, I finally just told them to cancel the hushpuppies since I was over half way through the meal. Waiter apologized, but didn't really seem to care. Overheard at least one other order they got wrong while we were waiting.
The family deal for shrimp was a great deal and good. Casual place.
LOVE the tacos and macaroni and cheese!!! Will definitely be back!
The food and customer service was amazing! Specifically, the shrimp was fresh and outstanding. We will be back!
Wonderful food - especially the shrimp! Friendly staff and great service. Our new Orlando favorite.
Great new restaurant near Disney. Loved the Jumbo Shrimp Sampler. 25 jumbo shrimp in 5 different styles. Get the home made Mac and cheese. Great find.
This place is beyond fantastic! After being tired of cooking for the last five months at home this was our first family dining out experience during Covid. Everything was perfect and we felt totally safe. All the staff wore masks and the shrimp dishes were amazing! We only tried two but will def go back for more. We saw the staff cleaning after other tables had left and they completely sanitized every single inch of their guest space. Great kids menu options so we all had a nice dinner. We will def be back. Excited to have this hidden gem on a regular rotation that’s for sure. PS. Andy is a fantastic server!
