Limited menu. That said we had several items, all of which were excellent.
They had an unbearably loud very mediocre cover band playing in the restaurant Saturday night. Fortunately we were seated outside.

Whenever we thought of something to to ask, she was right there. Her recommendations were amazing. Love this place. Will be back. Valet park, its so easy.

Overall a good experience
The restaurant has recently been remodeled with a new chic look
The menu has some unique seafood options and the presentation for what we ordered was great
The seafood tower was great
Sizzling kettle was great

The only complaint is the group sever model used. The servers were confused and disappeared at times. Needed to chase them down for the check

I’ll be back

Disappointed. After a nice appetizer, it was all downhill. Entrees were very slow coming out from the kitchen and my cod was cold. Sent it back, came back fine but never saw our waiter again until we had to ask for him. This place is way too loud, hard surfaces etc. With so many other good options in CG, don’t go here.

Excellent food but very poor service. The waiter who took the order didn’t serve the food and we had to get up and find a waiter to bring catsup and other condiments. It was a slow night and there were more waiters than customers but they still ignored us. Vary poorly managed restaurant. I assume all the talent was in the kitchen because they certainly were not on the floor.

The appetizers and entree were really good.
Desserts were a huge disappointment after such wonderful fare, they need to up the ante on the desserts the white brownie was like store bought even though the waiter stated everything was made on site, they need a WOW option, the apple cupcakes were a huge let down.

All the food was very good.

But the main courses came out too soon as we were still eating our very large, very good chopped salads.

Our server should have been aware of that and kept the mains warm in the kitchen until we were ready for them.

It's always a great experience dining here. There was a networking event for the Chamber taking place, which allowed me to connect with a few professionals prior to my meal.

While my server did mess up my order and recognize she served me the wrong dish, she was polite enough to discount the meal due to the error. You can never go wrong with the sushi, calamari or burgers here - especially on a Wednesday. They have burger specials.

Everything about this restaurant is top shelf. The wait staff was the most knowledgeable I have ever experienced. She spent at least 10 minutes explaining the menu, specials of the day, and her recommendations. We were given a complimentary appetizer because it was our first time dining with them. The menu items were superb and the drink selections were creative and wonderful. I highly recommend this restaurant.

The food and service were great but my only criticism is the fact that the restaurant keeps all of its doors and windows open (even though it’s hot and muggy out) for “ambiance” but all that does is make the folks that opted to eat inside feel stupid for eating inside! Dumb comment I know but I had to say it.

Thanks.
