Wife goes here all the time with her girlfriends and she loves the salmon lunch. Nice spot and food is reasonable and well made. We live close by and it’s easy to get in for lunch or dinner and fish is good.

Looking for a new place to eat since I pass through this area once a month or so. I asked about the waiter about the Seafood Enchiladas and he said it was one of his favorite on the menu. Well, I found them bland with...the only flavor coming from the corn enchilada shell which were so dry on the ends that I could not even cut through them. The bright side was the Clam Chowder which was excellent. Service was average.More

I had really tasty mussels made with a tomato sauce, sausage, and bell peppers. The bread was soft bread but hot, partially sliced, and buttery. My husband had a bowl of Louisiana gumbo and it was very good. My husband also had creamy key lime...pie which was good.More

I wasn't greeted when I came in as everyone was in the back.The portions were good as well as the food but I need better than good when paying that much.I tipped well but I would rather eat at Cristina's for the money.

In a world with so many restaurants to choose from, this one deserves a visit when you're in town! Isabelle, our waitress, and all of the staff were so friendly and professional. The food was really good, better than I remember our Rockfish in Houston...being. We ordered the calamari for an appetizer, and it was some of the best I've ever had. Very tender and the thick marina sauce was the bomb! I ordered the crab cake appetizer for dinner, and it was super yummy too. My husband had the Mahi Mahi dinner. He was very happy with his meal as well. If we ever get back to McKinney, we will definitely return. They treated us like we were regulars. Way to go!!! Thanks for a great meal! We also had gin martinis with a lime twist - how could I have forgotten those great drinks! Nice thin layer of ice chips on the top of the gin Perfecto!!More

Stopped for dinner after a quick pre-meeting meeting and asked for suggestions from our hotel staff. Gave us several and we hit a home run. Down home atmosphere, great server who really made some very suggestions and really nice preparations!

The bar is what’s happening in this place. Miss Teaghan and Bret tend the bar with a welcome greeting to all. First came here on my own and felt comfortable right away. There are plenty of tables to accommodate inside and out but I prefer...the bar where conversations with others is easy! Shrimp and grits so good, mud bugs in season, yum and fish and chips really fresh. grab some peanuts as you come in the door to sustain you until your food arrives. Watch for weekly specials and Happy Hour!More

Visited this restaurant with the family for the first time, heard a lot of good things about it so thought we would try it out... the ambience and decor is modern, restaurant is clean and the service was excellent. Cold beers and nice cocktails, started...off with their famous signature shrimp dish... wasn't too impressed, nice sauce but not something I would write home to mama about! the missus had the Chilean sea bass, she liked it, the kiddos and I had their fish and chips (was okay, had better) and m daughter had the salmon, which was okay too. bill topped out at over $200, value for money, not really, I don't think we will come back anytime soon!More
