This restaurant has become one of my and my husband's favorites. The food is always excellent, and the service is as well. The atmosphere is warm and inviting and welcoming.

Spacious and nice restaurant in downtown Dublin. Rooftop is cool, and there were generous helpings of food and drinks. My server was really nice and attentive.

When I first made the dinner reservation, I made it for 6 people. The day of our dinner, two more wanted to join it, so I called and spoke to Gayle over the phone. It was such a pleasant experience, she was so accommodating, made the changes and also greeted us with a very pleasant smile, and joyful attitude. I believe Lindsey was our waitress, what a wonderful person and experience. She was right there with everything. The meal was excellent and our guest want to come back their next visit and we will be happy to make another reservation.

We had a reservation several days prior, and traveled from out of town to see the band perform as we have family in the band. Got here for our reservation, and had to wait 10 min to even speak to a hostess, who just seemed confused. Management walked around clueless, saw us, and ignored us.

When finally greeted by the hostess, we were told our reservation time could not be honored as people weren’t getting up and they refused to ask them to get up. I informed them we wished to sit by the band and were told we didn’t need a reservation and it was first come first serve. She stated there were servers that would come to the table and wait on us, and the original menu was available except steak and pasta. ALL LIES!!

We were forced to sit on a picnic table in a corner, with no heat lamp in 50 degree weather because they did not have enough for the patio. Waited 40 min at the bar to order food and there was no one tending the bar. The food consisted of sandwiches, nachos, tacos, and fried bar foods. All things that could be made in a food truck type setting/mini kitchen, yet still $15 or so in price. At this point we left and I am appalled this place is still in business let alone with the reviews it has. My brother, who played in the band, managed to get food and stated it was alright but greasy. Nothing spectacular. Next time we will take our business to other places.

The food was over priced. They had ran out of a number of items on the menu. The bar upstairs was very noisy. During dinner we could hear people jumping or stomping upstairs. Very disappointed. The only good thing there was the hushpuppies they gave you at the beginning of the meal.

I was very disappointed in the service. I had reserved the rooftop for part of eight and we waited over 15 to 20 for someone set use a t the right table. And over an hour to place an order for the food these drinks was not the best the service was horrible.

The food was pretty tasty and the service was great. Almost too fast paced 😆. The bar doesn’t seem very experienced. The dirty martini was bizarre and the old fashioned wasn’t good. But everyone was polite and kind.

The waiter was a little slow but he did have several tables at the same time.
Food was very tasty; shrimp and grits were a little runny.

The place is nice looking. We went once and it was just ok. So we decided to give them another try. Appetizers are good, but we ordered one a second time and it came out different from the first time and not as good. It was covered in the sauce and the first time it was not. Their hush puppies are the best. Prob best thing there for sure, but their entrees are not good at all. Fish is not fresh at all. Dry and over cooked. Chewy like rubber. If I ever go back it would be for a beer and hush puppies and maybe the calamari w sauce on the side. Only the fried appetizers and entrees are good cuz anything fried was good. Lettuce from all of their salads was not fresh. Even the salad that came with one of their appetizers was wilted and not fresh. The food looked like it was pre made and sitting out and all the did was warm it. Terrible terrible. I’m not sure how this restaurant has over 5 stars. The service is great and the staff is very nice and helpful so maybe that’s why it has high ratings. Definitely not a five star food restaurant.

Reservation was on the rooftop, food was mediocre at best, drink selection not up to par. Guests at our table did not receive their food, when they asked our server they were told the order was put in for her to rush away from the table. Manager came over and apologized, eventually their order came but they were told they would only comp 1/2 of their dinner. Absolutely ridiculous when the entire table was finished with their meals before they got their meal. We enjoyed the piano dueling but good and service not at all!! Next time we will have dinner somewhere else prior to coming to an event like this!!

Loved the restaurant and the food, the service was outstanding my only complaint was the appetisers and main meal coming out all at once, the shrimps and scallops were really good but the crab cake was THE BEST I’ve ever had - will definitely be back.

The crabcakes were small and dry. The scallops were undercooked. GREAT drinks, service and atmosphere. The cornbread appetizers were FABULOUS. I have wanted to dine in for months and I was disappointed. However, I will be giving you another chance just in case it was a fluke.

We really wanted to support our local restaurant. Our total bill was $130 for 2. Service was excellent. Food was terrible . The drinks from the bar were $12 and terrible. Not many liquor selections. Wine was flat, old. We didn’t have our expectations set high. The owners would NOT have eaten this. Pictured are fried shrimp and oysters. Oysters weren’t fresh and barely recognizable. The table shared one ketchup. Salads served hot and food was served IMMEDIATELY after salads.

Food was spectacular. Entertainment was great. Even was greeted upstairs by one of the owners. Billy Cash and his wife. I believe I have the name correct. What a friendly and gracious host, even invited us to sit at his reserved table. We will be back for sure!

Salt Water Fishery was better than expected!!! The food was fantastic! We had the seared tuna app, corn and crab chowder and the shrimp and grits entree. The ambiance was wonderful and they pour a great glass of wine! Can’t wait to go back and check out the rooftop area.
