Consistently good! Always enjoy our meal here great fresh oysters and fish
Always a wonderful experience!
Wonderful as always , food , service was perfect. Will be back soon
Oysters always a treat! Go to meal of stuffed single lobster tail perfect! Dirty martini on point. ❤️
We have been to Shipwreck Grill many times and dinner has always been perfect. We went last Saturday and brought guests. Everyone was thrilled with their dinners. We can't wait to go again!
Perfect food as always!!
Great across the board as always.
Excellent food and service as always! The rack of lamb and surf and turf were beautiful, and we highly recommend the lobster bisque!
all is good and nice place to eat and near the water
Staff was lovely. Drink order taken immediately while we waited, which was a nice touch in this pandemic world. We enjoyed our drinks on the deck outside until called for our table. Atmosphere was dark, moody and quiet. Food was decadent. A bit on pricey side but right sized portions.
Our only complaint - WE COULDN'T SEE! :-) It was terribly dark and we needed the cell phone to see our food. I love ambiance but this was impossible to work with - so we used the phone lol. I would recommend. We were happy to try this new spot for us prior to Summer season when it will be busy for sure.
Not happy at all this time. I'm dairy free, told the waiter that multiple times, my food came out slathered in cream sauce. I tried to eat part of the steak, but 3/4 had the sauce.They apologized, said the runner gave me someone else's plate. Took it back, washed it off...my partially eaten steak that's wasn't even cooked rare as I asked, and gave it back to me! Now its way over cooked, not a grain of seasoning and I literally could not cut the lobster. The manager said they'd fire a new one, 20 minutes later, still no food. My husband had an awesome meal. The Brussel sprouts were good. I didn't want it anymore they took only that off the bill. I went home with a belly full of Brussel sprouts lol We love this place, very disappointing and waited 5 weeks for the reservation because they're always booked!
The food was great as usual. Although I noticed the portion sizes have gotten a little smaller for the same price. Unfortunately has to sit outside on screened in Porch. They have a heater out there but where we were sitting it was very cold. Had to eat with our coats on. They never brought us bread. I don’t recommend sitting outside until it gets a little warmer.
Everything was great and the service was perfect. I miss sitting at the bar though
I went for my 50th birthday dinner… And my friends surprised me at the table… The entire staff was in on it.....knew I was being surprised..... everyone was so sweet, service was impeccable, and the entire staff wished me a happy birthday as I left! Was wonderful, as always!
Excellent service...Katie was great. Very attentive. Food was awesome!
My favorite restaurant
We had a wonderful meal our server was fantastic also thank you for offering such great outdoor dining!
Expensive but great food. Ate outside on a very windy night and it was absolutely fine. Would definitely recommend for a special night out!
It was such a pleasure to sit out doors and not be rushed at all! our reservation was 6:15 and we didn't leave until 9pm. Great place I havent been there in a while but I'll be going back more often now!
Great food ,atmosphere and friendly service . Travel from Philadelphia for birthday celebration every year and worth the trip
The food and service was great. We were seated right away, according to our reservation.
Excellent food and service as always! Highly recommend.
The lamb shank special was outstanding. Our servers were pleasant and efficient.
My family eat here once every month or so. We know the menu and love the food/atmosphere. We sat outside during our last dinner and hurried through the experience due to the temps inside the tent. Food was great but had to keep our jackets on as the heaters couldn’t provide enough warmth to stay comfortable. Book in advance to avoid outside until the weather gets a bit warmer.
Very good meal & service. Table next to us a little loud but oh well.
Great but angry lobster needed to be more spicy , need to offer two versions one spicy , one very spicy
Always good food and service. Seafood fresh, excellent steak and very interesting cocktails.
During these times of Covid… It is so nice to be able to go to a restaurant where you are seated safely away from others, have access to sanitizer, as well as the option to sit at a normal table inside, on their outside heated patio or at a hightop by the bar… Food is always amazing as are the cocktails!
Excellent as always. Food, service, everything was great.
Food is phenomenal. Oysters are so fresh. Grouper is the best
The bone-in Ribeye is the best we ever had!
Also had the New Zealand Rack of Lamb, the most tender and flavorful ever!
We tried all the craft cocktails and they are addicting!
You cannot go wrong here!
Amazing place been there now several times and can’t wait to go back! Would highly recommend!!
Although I appreciate the current challenges with seating, when we arrived for our reservation we were told our table was still seated by previous customer. We were assured it would only be a few minutes. We were asked to sit outside, which was fine it was a night. We then waited 45 minutes without so much as an apology for the inconvenience.
Everything was outstanding except the hostess. We had requested a table in the back of the restaurant for our 16th wedding anniversary. When we arrived we were seated at the worst table in the restaurant. I immediately asked to move because the table was up against a wall with servers coming and going. I mentioned to the hostess my original request and he response was rude saying “That table is already taken.” When I inquired about another open table, I was told again that table was reserved. She finally gave me the 3rd table I asked for. Ironically two other couples came in after us and when she tried to seat them T the original table, they also moved. Our server was excellent and attentive and as always the food was amazing!
Fantastic food and ambience. Highly recommend.
I catch my own tuna and do not normally order it out. Their seared sesame tuna is to die for. Service was excellent!
Great as always , be back very soon. Terry stopped by and said hello
The food was great, however COVID safety protocol needs work. We were seated at a high top near the entrance and as people came in they were left standing next to our table- less than a foot away while we were attempting enjoy our food. First time I pointed this out to our server the people were moved to a secluded spot on the other side of the bar-problem solved, at least until the next group arrived. These folks not only hovered over our table,but pulled out blocked seats at the bar and sat down next to us. I then went to the manager to complain. When I explained the situation and that we weren’t comfortable being unmasked in close proximity to other people her disinterest was made evident by her rolling eyes and lack of communication. She finally had this group moved, however as we were finishing our meal another group set up camp next to us. Needless to say, our anniversary dinner wasn’t an enjoyable experience. The most upsetting part was the managers dismissive attitude. If she isn’t interested in customer service she’s in the wrong industry.
Excellent food as always, dining space is Covid friendly but with no bar patrons and the no TV atmosphere they pride themselves on its pretty dull inside- but you know the food is top of mind here, just wish they would to try to improve the ambiance post Covid-
