    We love the Real McCaw but was not super happy with our table. We were around the corner in the back of the outside area. We had hoped to be able to hear the music and we could not. And my daughters tuna was brought to the table still frozen. Outside of that everything was good. We will just make sure we ask for a table in the other part of the outside area for our next try.

    Had to send 2 drinks back from our table. Second drink was not what was ordered, but I drank it since it was made. The Johnny cakes were burned, and they are always so good. Entrees and desserts were very good though!

    Real disappointment. SLOW service - we left after an hour and a half without our food ever arriving. Went there after hearing positive comments from several friends. Took my father with me. He had been there years prior, and also remembered it was a very nice place and he enjoyed it. Unfortunately, even though we had a reservation at 6:30 and showed up on time and were seated immediately, no one provided any service for nearly 20 minutes until we asked who our server was. We had gotten missed. Once a server assigned, they quickly got us drinks and took our full order. We got a shrimp cocktail delivered pretty quickly, but at 1.5 hours when no food had arrived, we put down cash to cover the drinks and shrimp and walked out. It wasn’t that busy when we arrived, but it was packed by the time we left and we watched many others sitting and not getting their food either. Nice atmosphere, decent wine list, expect the food would have been good…

    Our meal for the price was just adequate. My husbands steak was excellent but my tuna was very plain to say the least... no special anything (seasoning, sauce or preparation ... just tuna with vegetables on the side and your normal condiment of ginger, wasabi and a small amount of seaweed salad. Service was poor- we waited a good 15-20 min. before anyone noticed us after being seated (and this was even after we asked). Our server never told us of specials (and I know there were some because I over heard another server tell his table), she never asked if we would like any refills or another drink, had to ask for the johnny cakes ... the list goes on :( We ate here many years back and wanted to give it a try again -- now I know why we waited so long :/

    We love the Real Macaw and took our family for Christmas Eve dinner. It was wonderful and we love the new decor and the wait staff all dressed up for Christmas. So good to see them back up and running after the hurricane. The onion soup was especially good. Between the 6 of use we had duck, steak, tuna and shrimp scampi. Everyone was happy. We shared chocolate and bread pudding deserts, yum. As usual the service was great. They had more people inside than usual because of the cold weather so the noise level was high although not overpowering. A great fun time with family in a lovely restaurant.

    This was a Christmas Eve dinner to remember. Fabulous staff and ambiance! Staff was dressed up in elf and Cindy lu etc costumes/quite the team! AND …The food was delicious. We had the swordfish and the roast duck for entrees. Really great chef! It was 40 degrees and somehow the staff pulled it off delivering hot dishes without a hitch. Recommend this place anytime!
