    The fish market is great! Went there with a group and really loved it - we shared the grouper appetizer and it was terrific. I had the paella and enjoyed it, but it was a little bit too saffron-y for my taste.

    There are few places I would say that I will never return but this is one I can say I will never return. Food marginal, noise and atmosphere are not welcoming. Save your money and find another location.

    Tried multiple fish dishes. We asked for the food not to seasoned and without salt. Despite that request, the crab claws and the octopus were highly seasoned and salty. The octopus was overcooked and rubbery. The lobster was excellent and the grilled platter with grouper, shrimp, scallops and oysters was good. The waitress was very nice and friendly.

    So the clam chowder to start with was good and that’s where the positive ends. My husband and I both ended up ordering shrimp and grits and apparently that was our mistake. Shrimp were mildly undercooked. But the worst was the very first shrimp my husband tasted was bad. He didn’t take a bite of anything else because it completely ruined his stomach. My shrimp weren’t bad but the dish was just eh. And the sides weren’t much better. I ended up calling it quits just a few bites into my meal too. They did take my husbands meal off the check which was most definitely appropriate but we will never return and I would recommend avoiding this joint if I were you.

    We are big seafood fantastics and just had the absolute worst set of seafood. It is possible that our mistake was dining on a Monday where you typically have all of the D players working. Food was inedible and We actually had to argue the quality of the food with the “on duty manager”. Way overpriced for food and service. Like another person said in his review - better seafood is found at Captain D’s.

    Cool building and history but the food was just ok. I would not go again. Cioppino was only average with little flavor and not as much seafood as expected. Best thing were the hush puppies - so go for hush puppies and a drink but save your dinner for elsewhere.

    Even though I had a reservation, we were still 20 minutes late being seated. I believe that we could have been seated faster if we had gotten a number. The worst of the experience was, we had our Mother, who is 92 years old, trying to celebrate Mother's Day. We sat for a while waiting for our meal and everyone was served except for my Mother. We kept asking our waiter about her food, he would go "check" on it, come back and tell us it was coming right out. She finally received her food after sitting for one and a half hours after she ordered and only then because we found a manager that could get her food. No one enjoyed their food because we were trying to get my Mother fed. We usually cook for Mother but this year decided to take her out - worst decision yet!

    We ate here for Mother’s Day. We had a reservation for 1:15, but weren’t seated until about 1:40. We weren’t too upset by this, though, because it was super busy; however, it took us over an hour to receive our food after we ordered. We didn’t leave the restaurant until 3:30. While the food was tasty and enjoyable and our server was friendly, this restaurant didn’t warrant the 2+ hours we spent there.

    I’ve been to this establishment several times and it has always been good. Today was a complete bust. Our server was a very sweet lady that should probably retire. Our salads came before appetizers. Our appetizer showed up at the same time as our entrees. The food was possibly the worst restaurant dish I may have ever had. I’ll go back again, and hope it has improved. If not it’ll be my last trip.

    We cancelled our reservation as we walked in and opted to sit at the bar. The bartender was amazing and served us, despite how busy she was, with a great attitude. The ambiance is a little casual compared to my expectations. The food was good but not great. The value was superb though. 9verall, we had a great experience and have already suggested it to friends.
