The staff is very knowledgeable about their food. The food is ok at best wasn't really well seasoned and not worth the high price. This is based off of myself and 2 companion. Drinks excellent. The staff and service is great so it makes up for okay good.

Here with a large group and it has been an experience. The service is very slow from the inception. Had a reservation, table is ready, no one in the restaurant but not allowed to sit until the exact time of the reservation. Ordered the Spicy Shrimp Bowl. Not worth the price.

We waited over 45 minutes for any food to appear on our table. There were only a few other diners in the restaurant. We informed our waitress when we sat down that we were time limited. The food was not good. Two people sent the stuffed shrimp back; they were so bad. Fries were cold. Waitress apologized but we still... More

First time visitor. Was staying nearby and found this place with a quick search. The oysters and beer selection were perfect. Great selection of both. However, the setting was not, well, nautical. It was a typical casino setting. Not a lot of down home vibes.

It is our joy to serve you the freshest seafood, the finest handcrafted beers, and a superior wine selection!
