    Janet was amazing! She made our experience an extremely memorable one, and thought we don’t live here when we come back to visit we will definitely be requesting her. The food was outstanding, my steak was cooked perfectly. Our favorite part was the bottomless mimosas, the cherry on top.

    We made two separate reservations of 5 since we had a larger group. The staff were really kind and sat us altogether in one room. The oysters and shrimp and grits were outstanding.

    We ate on a Friday night, service was extremely fast…maybe too fast?? My wife ordered the crawfish pie entree. The crust was burned and the inside was overcooked. I ordered Stinky’s stew, and it was ok. She tried to order a strawberry margarita. They did the best they could….water, blanco tequila, and thawed out strawberries….do you can imagine what that tasted like.

    Went with family for a mother/daughter trip. The server was initially very rude. I texted a friend to tell them that they don’t split the check, so that is something she needs to consider before coming, she called to verify, and later decided not to come. The server came to our table with major attitude and I had to clarify the situation to him, that we had already ordered, how in the world could we cancel a reservation after our order had been placed. I believe he overheard my disgust in his service and his attitude, and that is when he changed. He then became very prompt, attentive, and our food started arriving quickly. The chef later came to our table and he was SUPERB! He made several trips to our table, and this made our experience much better. My filet mignon was initially overcooked, and he promptly took it away and provided another cooked to perfection. I tried to tip HIM and he refused, saying it was his job and it was a pleasure serving us. Unfortunately our initial 30 minutes were awful, the experience did get better, but not enough for us to return on our next visit.

    My friend and I had reservations here for NYE and were really excited after reading the reviews. They said they were too busy to seat us inside despite having reservations so we sat outside. The food was pretty good (I had Stinky's Stew and my friend had the gnocchi), but a few bites in my friend pointed out a RAT running around and we screamed. Everyone sitting outside on the patio was grossed out. Then the waiter told us the rats go inside the restaurant frequently. We saw the rat again a few minutes later near the door to the inside of the restaurant, which was pried OPEN so the rat could have scurried inside. We informed the manager and he said that the rat was outside and that was out of his control. We left right after that.

    Great food and even better service. Our server was training and both our server as well as her trainer and all other staff members were very personable, knowledgeable about the menu and they had great spunk and attitudes. The hotel and resturant area has great ambience as well. There is outdoor dining and bar area seating as well. The frogs legs and oyster log were delicious! The BBQ shrimp app is great also. Wish the frogs and shrimp were a little larger in portion though. The red beans was the special of the day and it was great and had a little spicy kick. 9/10 on all food items! I will be back. Great date night place too

    Restaurant gets a smokey haze especially the closer you are to the kitchen which was irritating my eyes. The fried brie burger was amazing, also had a pasta dish that was a special and it was just ok. Service was incredibly slow but they were very busy.

    Exceptional!!! The food was perfectly prepared. The photos do not do it justice. The grillades were spot on, grits pure heaven. Brian (our server) could not have been any more fun and attentive. He is a 15 out of 10!! If you are dining there, request him…you will not regret 🤠 The restaurant is part of the hotel but do not be fooled, it is not hotel food!!

    I order a steak mid well. It came our rare to medium rare. Because of a food allergy I ordered my entree a certain way. It came out wrong. That was after the waitress verified how I wanted it prepared. The also could make a proper old fashioned. After they botched both entrees we decided to leave.

    Really nice surprise. Had never dined there before, so we tried it just to try something different. We will definitely be back. Great food, service, and soft live Christmas music in the background. The only knock is it is small and at times can be noisy with crowd noise. I wouldn’t let that deter me from trying this establishment.

    Good meal. Service could have been a little better for the cost but was not bad. Very loud in the restaurant but I think it is always loud so not abnormal. Something I haven’t experienced at nicer restaurants was the bill had two prices, one for cash and one for credit card. $7 difference.

    Horrible experience. Do not recommend. We ordered 2 appetizers and my husband got a cup of soup. Pretty mediocre. The BBQ shrimp were not good. We hoped for the entrees to be better. We both got a feature of the day for our entrees, filet and lobster. We both took one bite, sent it back and asked for the check. The “filet” tasted disgusting. The taste was just gross, the texture was like it was a $2 piece of meat, and it had a bone in it. I have never seen a filet with a bone in it. We didn’t even try anything else on the plate. It was just that bad. The manager came and took the entrees off our bill. When we got the bill it was still much more than we thought. We thought we ordered apps that were on the happy hour. Waitress told us because we didn’t specify she gave us the regular menu ones. Our waitress also ruined the night for us. The bus boy had to refill our drinks because the waitress never came by us except to take our order the first time and then we had to wait a while before she came back by us for us to tell her we hated the entrees. She was horrible and had a terrible attitude. Overall we spent $50 on horrible food and service. Will never go back and again do not recommend.
