    We always enjoy it here. We came the night before our reservation and sit at the bar. Different prices than at the table. Everything was really good! But, I had put on the reservations that it was our anniversary and no one even asked us at the front when we were being seated or at the table. Just an acknowledgment would have been nice. Going back again tonight for salad and appetizers sitting at the bar. Yes, we like it here!

    Was excited to get reservations here as we were staying within walking distance. We arrived a little earlier than our reservation and they were able to get us seated right away. For having a reservation, I would have liked a booth seat or a two-top table. For the menu prices, I was surprised to see televisions. It felt more bar & grill than upscale. Food was tasty overall and our drinks were good. Hubby had the steak and shrimp. It was cooked perfectly and he didn’t leave a morsel. He had the spicy spinach mac & cheese but he said it wasn’t spicy at all. I had the broiled seafood platter with the grits. The seafood was great but the grits left much to be desired. I was really expecting a creamy, savory side. I was left with moderately warm grits that just tasted like it had been smoked with a smoker they use for bar drinks. Portion sizes seemed fair. I couldn’t finish my plate. Would come back but would try a turf option next time.

    came to gatlinburg for the weekend & dined here for a birthday - couldn’t have picked a better place! the service was incredible. we got a booth by a window & the view was amazing. we ordered some grilled + raw oysters, and they were DELISH. highly recommend ordering the lobster as well - they bring it out to the table and crack it right in front of you. super cool experience! out of all the places we went to, this was our favorite! 10/10 would come back, and recommend to anyone wanting a great meal with great service. super impressed!

    First let me start by saying I’m a picky eater and I read reviews. I went on a weekday, as they were opening. I recommend making a reservation because they filled up quick. The waiter was so kind and very accommodating. I had the calamari, Rockefeller oysters, and fried seafood platter with a swap of grilled shrimp. ALL the food was awesome. The platter was enough for 2 people.. next time I will split it with someone. Definitely worth the money.

    This is a great restaurant. I was shocked that such an awesome seafood dinning experience existed so far into the interior of the United States. This seafood was really fresh. I wish one of these existed in Lexington, Kentucky. If you are in Gatlinburg you must eat at least one meal here.

    My husband and I ate here on Christmas Day. We were 10 minutes late for our reservation but the host was kind about it and seated us shortly after arriving. Our server, Jason, was just awesome. Very knowledgeable, professional and also a genuinely nice guy. The food was absolutely amazing!! We had the clam fingers as an appetizer. Then we had a cup of crab bisque and a house salad, both delicious! My husband then had raw oysters on the half shell that he said were perfect. I had one of the daily specials for my meal. It was Crab stuffed flounder with a lobster cream sauce over quinoa. Oh my goodness, it was unreal!! Every single thing we ate, every member of staff we interacted with was above and beyond what we expected!! It was hands down the best meal we have ever had!!
