    Honestly the restaurant itself is a nice & sociable environment . But the food could be seasoned better , the famous “oysters” could have been seasoned better . And little more variety of food to choose from should be added to the menu .

    Our entrees - grouper and cobia - were very good, with excellent presentation. Oysters Rockafeller appetizer also very good. Now for the negatives - the shrimp hush puppies with pimento sauce appetizer was OK, except for the hardened piece on one of the hush puppies which indicates to me that they were frozen and microwaved. Our caesar salads had very little dressing and nothing that made them stand out. Our server asked if we needed takeout boxes, but we had gotten our entrees less than 3 minutes earlier. Also, this restaurant was advertised as good for romantic occasions, but the noise level made it difficult to hold a conversation.

    Thomas did an awesome job serving 7 of us. The food was okay. I understand breakfast is not the main food but it was just okay. The Seafood omelette is missing something. Maybe some seasoning or cheese. The breakfast potatoes needed some peppers or seasoning. We still had a great time.

    Food is fresh and tasty. A nice variety. Shrimp hush puppies are a must. And you must try the key lime pie and chocolate mouse!
