Had a private dinner with about 12 business associates. Service was attentive, knowledgeable prompt. Had the crab cakes and they were outstanding. Almost no filler a plenty of crab meet. The key lime pie was a great conclusion.

Had dinner at the bar. Was busy and waitress was overwhelmed. Service was off and not so great ambience. Some people with babies at bar. The food was good, fish tacos were tasty and Oyster Rockefeller was delicious, Cheesy and with pancetta. Disappointed with surroundings and service.

A few days before, called and made reservation for 4 for the New Year's Eve, Dec. 31, 2016. I said I want a table away from the entrance and the restrooms. I was told "no problem." To make sure we would show up, I had to give my credit card number, and was warned a $100 charge if no-show. An... More

We split a seafood gumbo soup and a seafood salad on date night. Those two dishes plus a glass of sauvignon blanc each and the tab came to only $45.

The food is outstanding and portions are large! The only thing we did not care for... More

I was staying in a nearby hotel and did not fancy long cab rides, my hotel told me about this place and they were right. the service is prompt, friendly and attentive, the cocktails are sharp, the place is busy but not manic, the menu is vast and the food well cooked. highly recommended.
