    Service started off BEYOND SLOW improved as time went on. Food was hit or miss depending on what was ordered. We ordered a Tavern Burger medium Well it was served Rare. The marinated chicken was rubbery…

    The food as usual was amazing. The service was slow but our waitress was extremely nice. Of course “there is a lack of help” and I’m tired of hearing that for the last 3 years. It’s everywhere and that’s all the people in the stores and restaurants tell you. I understood during Covid but not now. The hostess was rude. Once you get past her and overlook the slow service it was amazing.

    Heard really good things about this restaurant and read good reviews. Was very disappointed. We were energetically greeted by our hostess, so were willing to dine in. Our waitress was abrupt, seemed annoyed to deal with us or any questions regarding the specials which she rattled off in a hurry. She was borderline rude. Never checked on us after serving. The tuna poke was a brownish color that we've never seen before and did not taste fresh. We did not finish. The meal was decent. Needed a knife to cute the black drum special, but it was different but tasted good. Very disappointing as we had attempted to get a reservation here for the last couple of years. Would not return.

    Best view I could ask for. The reservation process was quick and easy. The food was good and worth the price. The service was kind of spotty but normal for the times we are in. I’m guessing they were short staffed.

    There were 10 of us and the place was busy and loud. The food was just okay. We had the very best fried green tomatoes at another restaurant 2 nights before. The order here was mediocre. They were out of some of the seafood and did give us a small credit on our bill since they said they’d substitute with more shrimp but only gave us 3 more tiny shrimp between the two entrees we ordered. The scallops and the pork chop were over done. I think if you want a burger or fish sandwich you’d be fine.

    The overall experience was excellent. Most of the food was outstanding with one exception - the lamb meatloaf seemed to have been a bit overcooked and dry - still tasty though.

    Not sure what was going on in Duck this year - the server seemed annoyed to be working. She was not friendly at all. She was more attentive to a larger party next to us, even forgot to pickup my husbands 2nd glass of wine - he ended up seeing it at the bar and got it himself. The food was not hot - it was warm bordering on cold - just disappointed as we had a great meal and time last year. Hope things get back to normal service wise. View was beautiful thought!

    The shrimp pasta was tasty but had only a few shrimp. Not worth the price. The Southern Fish Fry had cornbread that was very dry and not tasty.

    Service was mediocre at best. The food came out in 3 minutes and felt like it had been premade and was just sitting there, barely warm. The atmosphere was nice, but overall it was a letdown even though the place was recommended by friends.

    4 of us seated close to reservation time and were greeted by a server who seemed ready for the day to be over, which happens. Our food was average, NY strips (my sister felt she could get just as good at Applebees), but, the Tavern burger and tasty fries got rave reviews. My husband ordered a mocktail, but, server apparently did not catch that and he was brought to alcohol version...not good as he takes a medication that allows for no alcohol. The circumstances could have been dire if husband didn't catch the mistake within first couple sips. All out server did was say "that's what you ordered" and she walked away. Did not even offer him the mocktail version. Strange. She had been hard to find all evening ( came to our table only one time between ordering and delivering drinks/food)but another very friendly server refilled out waters (sat empty for about 10 minutes) and we finally snatched salt and pepper from a nearby table ourselves. Not a good overall experience for us.

    The decor and view of the sound is lovely. All four of us really enjoyed our meals, artfully done, creative and original. Loved the scallops - my friend’s steak was perfectly grilled and tender and she loved the sauce. She plans to try to replicate it! We had strawberry shortcake that was a hit.
