Had reservations but they were a little behind. Not that big of a deal when you have 14 people. Food varied from seafood pasta to scallops to filets. Everyone said their meal was very good. Pricing is not high nor cheap. I'd say it is reasonable for what you get. We will definitely be going back. Parking garage is pretty... More

We managed to get in on a Saturday night at 5:15 (had an event later that evening). Service was friendly and attentive. Appetizers were very generous, good fried pickles, huge serving of nachos with beef tips and excellent pimento fondue (really just a hot dip) with housemade potato chips. Salmon was very good entree, as were crabcakes and tuna. Our... More

We decided at the last minute to eat here based on the recommendations of others. It was late on Saturday afternoon so we got there at 5:30. Their first opening was 8:45. However we found two seats at the bar and they offered full service. The mixed drinks were generous and the bartender took our dinner orders. The beef tips... More

We went for our first visit on a Thursday evening 7pm and were so excited to get an outside table after a 7 minute wait. I ordered the marinated beef tips and my husband had the salmon and crab. The beef tips were so juicy and almost melted in my mouth. All I can say is I couldn't stop bragging... More

This was our first visit here. Read a lot of reviews. The place is a little darker for ambiance. Service was polite and speedy. Nice menu selection. Started with the oysters rockefeller and she crab soup. The oysters were luke warm and so was the soup. The soup is unlike any I've ever had. Didnt taste sherry - but a... More

All I heard about was how great this place was. Had a group of 10 called ahead and they said they couldn't seat us but could sit at the bar. We saw vacant tables and thought that was odd. We ate at the bar - crab nachos we're pretty good. Then the she crab soup ... oh my. Was a... More

I love the steak with chimichirra. The shrimp and grits are amazing as well. Very nice atmosphere and conveniently located around the corner from the parking garage. This is a must-try at least once.

Soooo good ole Greenville. Or how many of us like to call it...Gvegas. Because literally being in this town is like hitting gold. Its got great views, great adventures and great food. The best seafood however is this place right here. I've gone many times before and most recently this past January and it never disappoints. The plumpest freshest oysters... More
