    Great staff, food was good but not great, especially for the price. $400 for 6 dinners with only spring water, 4 cocktails and entrees seems excessive. Requested outdoor seating at reservation but had indoor table, although outdoor was available. Very few patrons so noise level was fine. Enjoyed the meal but unlikely to return.

    The scallop appetizer was great! I ordered the lobster melt for my entree and it was disappointing. The lobster was overdone and the jam too spicy.

    Our waiter was awesome! We enjoyed him. The food was a bit underwhelming. I had steak medallions and scallops with some vegetables for $48ish. Pretty small portions. The 2 scallops were good though.

    Picked the Crazy Lobster as a last minute choice, and we weren’t disappointed in the slightest! Great food, but just a little pricey. However, the portions are large (the fried shrimp and fries was more than one person should attempt to eat, and the lobster bisque was amazing. Definitely on the “need to return to” list. You will not be disappointed!

    The waitress was amazing as was the hostess and manager. We ordered the surf and turf for the husband. The kitchen over cooked the lobster making it rubbery and the steak medallions were cooked med well instead of medium rare. The flavor profile sounded delicious it wasn’t anywhere near that. I ordered the snapper and the fish was way over salty to the point you didn’t want to eat it or needed tons of water to wash it down. I am not jumping to spend that much money going back for a second chance

    We had a lovely family dinner with 8 of us dining. Staff (Emma/Claire) was great and food was pretty good. It’s a pricier restaurant but it’s in a resort filled with tourists so it’s expected. We had children with us so it was nice that afterwards we could walk around and stopped to get some drinks after dinner and gelato. The only complaint or what other customers should be aware of if you are not staying at the resort (we weren’t) is that parking is very limited for people outside the resort. We luckily left early or would have had to park in a lot off site and take a shuttle in, which would have made us late for our reservation. They also had valet parking for $12, so we went with that option since they still had a few spots and we had hungry children in our group. Otherwise it was a lovely dining experience and would go again in the future.

    We ate here during spring break with a party of 12 for a birthday celebration. The food was excellent and the staff was wonderful and friendly. Service was a little slow, but it was okay as we were enjoying friends and drinks while we waited. Everyone loved their meal and we would definitely go again.

    The restaurant was short staffed and was super apologetic about it which was nice. However, I was not impressed with the food for the price and that is my biggest complaint. The lobster bisque was overly salty and the salad was just okay (and I was only offered ranch dressing). Overall a disappointing experience t for the price.

    This place needs help. Over priced and food quality was not good. Service was a struggle for our party of 12 and the restaurant was not busy. Fried fish, shrimp and chicken tenders were fine, but the lobster was dry and overcooked. Fish was bland and overcooked. Steak was undercooked and bland. Boiled items were bland and rubbery. Maybe smaller tables had a better experience, but I would spend my money elsewhere.

    It took almost 55 mins to get drinks and food didn't arrive until we had been there for almost 90 minutes. Food quality wasn't great and the value just wasn't there. Our waiter was excellent and doing his best, but back of house staff and bar staff were just not where they should have been for this process point. Won't be returning

    It took several minutes for the Hostess to greet us and sit us at our table (had reservations for 4 and arrived on time). Server greeted us promptly, but took a while to return (same for the remaining dinner: was always slow with requests). Appetizers were average and drinks took longer than the appetizers did. We could see the bartender having to read the instructions on how to make our drinks and they turned out watered down and not what we expected. Food was less than average as the snow crab was mostly empty, fries were soggy, and fried seafood had no taste (needed a lot of tartar sauce). We chose not to get desserts due to the lack of food quality and slowness of the service. Total amount for 4 people was $325. The value was not worth the food or service.

    Food was excellent. Waiter would be attentive one minute and then seemed to fade away. Was told a printer issue was the cause for the delay of the food. Got the bill before we actually got all the food. Seemed odd that we went to a lobster restaurant and whole lobster was not on the menu. Wouldn’t recommend.

    The only reason I scored 4 stars was because the restaurant is very hard to find. The GPS tried to take us down a road only for golf carts. The website has no directions. When we called the phone number from the website it went to an answering machine. Also the restaurant is not listed on the directory of the area it’s in.

    I made reservations for a 45th birthday with 13 adults. I was disappointed in all of it. They don’t allow couples to pay separately. One ticket doesn’t work for everyone. Our waitress was less than friendly. Overpriced for casual outdoor dining. Nothing special about the food. It was just OK.

    The quality of food was very very poor — frozen shrimp, cold soup and incomplete meals — missing items from description. Only saving grace — waitress was nice and the manager removed the cold soup from the bill and gave us a discount.

    Honestly the food was fantastic. Our server was sweet but did not pay attention to the needs of one of our party. We had one of us who has a lactose allergy, and upon asking the server for dairy free options he denied knowledge of such. She ordered the chicken panee dish and asked that sauces/butter/cheese be held. He brought her meal with all but the cheese still present. After eating she was extremely sick and that made the experience very disappointing.
