The seafood tower was extremely fresh and very good, the crab stuffed flounder was ok, Could’ve used a bit more seasoning. I was there with my husband and there was plenty of seating available however we were surrounded by 3 families with young children which were very loud, crying and whiny. We chose to eat fairly early and cannot understand why they wouldn’t have set the families a bit closer together and may be away from couples that were dining alone especially when there were A LOT of tables available

We had a great meal in a charming setting. It was a short walk from our hotel and we enjoyed the experience. Shrimp was great. Crab cakes were different than we had expected but good none the less.

I gave the restaurant a poor rating, but this is primarily because of the service by the hostess. We had booked an 8:30 reservation three weeks before we were arriving which was all that we could get on Open Table and it too late for our liking. We were told on the telephone that we would be able to get an earlier reservation a day or two before. But when we went in person to the restaurant the hostess told us there was nothing available all week. She also had no time for us. Therefore, we did not dine there and cancelled our reservation.

This place is amazing, had a reservation at 8:30, came late and was still seated in less than 10 minutes. Our waitress Diane (Diana) was amazing, she had great recommendations for the dinner menu and was just overall super friendly!

The seafood platter was an 8/10. The breading was bland and need more spice. I feel this dish deserves something different than fries as a side dish for the price. I will visit again.

This was such a letdown. 3 lobster tails went into the garbage because they were so tough and over cooked. The fried green tomatoes were slimy and the best part of the blue crab dip were the chips (fried Mission Tortillas). The grouper with crab topping was alright, but not wonderful. The server was excellent and the manager was very nice, took the lobster off the bill and sent us home with desserts...got back to the hotel and they were the desserts the table next to us had ordered. Would not recommend this to anyone at all!

Food was okay. I need to cross reference with Yelp when I see restaurants as 4.5 stars. Both entrees required salt and pepper so basic. Peach cobbler was deconstructed but very yummy.

Though this restaurant is on River Walk with a great view, the food and the service leave a lot to be desired. The service was terrible. Some people should not be waiters. A smile goes a long way. I had blackened fish which was overdone and when asked for a bit more whipped cream for the peach cobbler, it took at least 10 minutes for the waiter to bring a cup with about a half ounce of cream. I would not go back for food but for view.

Nice casual atmosphere. We had the fried green tomato appetizer which was flavorful and well done. My husband had grouper and it had no flavor. Very disappointing. I had flounder over pasta. The flounder was flavorful but the pasta needed salt. It was very watery.

I selected this location to celebrate my sister’s birthday. Although my daughter is allergic to seafood we have eaten at many seafood restaurants. This is the 1st time a manager told us they suggested we NOT eat at a place. I now know why. We ordered a veggie plate (collards, mac were horrible. I ordered the sweet potatoes awhich were uneatable because of the strings. Do NOT waste your money or time.

I’d like to rate the quality of my food but I only got salad. The waiter forgot to put my order in. When they serves my wife her entree and I got my salad at the same time I should have known something was wrong. Our waiter never came by to see how things were. We finally flagged another waiter down. He got ours and we discovered he had not put mine in. They would go prepare it and give it to me for free but since we had an 8 pm reservation it was almost nine, I declined. My wife said her fish was ok. In the end they comped the whole evening. Not a good experience.

Must have been a bad night. Crab dip had very little crabmeat, blue cheese potato chips had no blue cheese and the fish dish wasn’t cooked all the way. In addition the Savannah paella was dry. Have had lunch there in the past and it was good. Not a good experience this time.

The service was phenomenal from the wait staff. The only issue we had was we checked in for our reservation about 15 minutes early, and had to go back to the greeter to remind them of our reservation. There were at least 3-4 tables that were open the entire time we waited, and probably could have been seated a bit earlier rather than leaving us waiting. The food was great with a great variety for everyone in our party.
