My partner and I went for Valentines Day and it was packed! Surprisingly, service was efficient and fast. Food was great and I would return to try a few more things. Nothing but good things to say about this place.

Owner greeting was nice. Cornbread appetizer was ok. Wait staff were nice. Oysters Rockefeller was best thing of the whole dinner experience but most of the oysters were not attached to the shells. ??Nothing else looked or tasted fresh. Great potential. Very Disappointing.

Good selection. Friendly staff. One of the most reliable VB restaurants for fresh and well prepared seafood with a noise level that is not too high. The crab bisque, crab cakes and oysters are fabulous!

This is my 4th visit in the last 3 years. Each time I noticed that the service is going down hill the quality of the food has declined. It's all hype. Food was cold. Portion size on the decline
Over priced. Will not be back. I have blasted it on social media. My anniversary was completely ruined. That was the last time they will take my money.
