It was LOUD! People were vaping inside. Not safe at all. Very crowded. There was security with bullet proof vests. If that’s needed then I definitely don’t feel safe. I won’t be returning.

The crab cakes taste like imitation meat. The boil I had which included head off shrimp and crab legs hot. Spicy should not mean salty! The salt was so overbearing I couldn’t even eat it. I left with a headache and upset stomach. I had to drink a gallon of water to get the salt out of my system and to start feeling better! I just wasted 111.00

I was visiting Atlanta and wanted to try them as a black owned establishment. I had a reservation and was seated within 5 minutes after that the experience went downhill. My party and i waited 15 mins for our server to come over which did not happen while they all kept taking care of the other tables around us promptly. We had to request the Manager to get us a server which was blamed on the seater not notifying the server that we were assigned to her. Needless to say our orders were taken and we were not given the customary bibs, bucket and gloves to use. We once again had to ask the Manager to get us what we needed to enjoy our dinner; he should have gotten the tip. The only thing that saved the tip from being zero was the food because the kitchen did a great job and got everything out timely and it was delicious. I definitely recommend the seafood egg rolls. I probably won’t go back there again to dine in when I am back visiting Atlanta I could do take out next time because the kitchen handled their business.

1) had reservations and still had to wait 20mins
2) parking situation is awful
3) server didn't write anything down and messed up our order...twice
4) they were out of simple items like strawberry mix.
5) 2 crab egg rolls were $16

If you been to Juicy Crab this place is no different...maybe even worse. I won't be going back...EVER

The vibe was really cool , the flight of margaritas were great but took a minute. They should hire more workers , the food was a 6/10 . Seafood bag the flavor was soooooo lemon , like a string sour taste I didn’t like. The fish was so soggy not cooked well enough

The tiniest chicken wings I have ever seen and eaten in my entire life. The food was tasty overall but value, service, and ambiance-wise, I'd go elsewhere.

It's a small place, the food I had was good! The manager she was a lady that doesn’t understand what customer satisfaction is and needs a new attitude. When I had my issue with my drinks she came over and never even introduced herself. She came over and said what's the problem? They need to let customers know what the policies are before ordering or at least place it around on the walls to be read. No one goes to a restaurant for food to read policies.

We were not acknowledged after being seated for quite some time. The waitress did not check in on us at all while dining. The food is very pricey and they charge for the air you breathe so Make sure you bring two arms and a leg to afford your dinner. The food despite the service was very good though.

The restaurant is located in a shopping center. No where to park. Valet is the only option in which you have to wait in line for a long time for. The tables are very close together. You will be sitting right next to another party. The food is overpriced for the serving size. Very small inside. Tables are just pushed close together to seat more people. The staff attire consist of tight black outfits which are not professional or coordinated. Each person wears something different. The staff was friendly. I waa expecting a more upscale environment for the prices.

Got in and seated right away, orders came out in good timing aside from one dish that took a while. Sat at the bar and the service was very good, we were well taken care of. Food was really good as this was my third time there. The hush puppies are my fav!

I would not eat here again. The corn wasn’t done. How do you mess up corn I don’t know. The seasoning from the seafood boil was disgusting! I’m upset because my bill was high for disgusting food. I was looking forward to some awesome seafood and this was not it. I’m extremely disappointed. I wouldn’t mind paying a high price for a great taste, but this wasn’t it. I strongly would not recommend!!!

It’s was our first time. Food was overhyped which was disappointing, it’s was just decent. Drinks were fire though! (Even though they were expensive). Service was bit slow as well. I just say on a scale of 1-5 it’s just a 3 the drinks saved them.

The worst food experience I’ve had to date! Hopefully the last…The service was poor! Management team, server, and waitstaff lacks customer service all around, unpolished, rude, and distasteful. This place is a complete joke!!! The fried seafood was ok, but the crab boils in the bag were heavily season, seafood did not taste fresh. The drinks taste like fruit juice.

The flavor of the food is great but the heat levels are inconsistent! Sometimes hot is hot and sometimes it is mild. I do enjoy coming here to support this black owned business! The parking situation can get hectic but overall I will keep coming back!
