    We had a great waitress and I can’t remember her name but she was funny and attentive. The lobster roll and lobster mac & cheese were perfect. My old fashion was great and I felt the bill was reasonable. Can’t wait to go back!

    Host appeared to hate her job and never smiled once or made us feel welcomed. Manager seemed over whelmed. Our server saved our experience. He was very nice and attentive. Food was mediocre at best

    The food and service was fine - we were placed adjacent to the bar and it was very loud and noisy. Also - due to a Pacer game - which clearly, we were not attending they decided to charge $ 60.00 plus tip for valet at the restaurant - not advertised and communicated as they were already moving the car. The sign stated $ 15.00 for valet - so the night started off with a bad taste in our mouths - I guess we can only go to Pier 48 when nothing else is going on downtown or we may get price gouged.

    Never got our meal after an hour and a half. Server didn’t even offer to comp any of our bill. Second time I’ve had bad dining experience here. Not looking at ever going back which is a shame due to its location and overall satisfying ambiance

    Went before a basketball game, and they had tables so close together the servers were having to try and squeeze around everyone. Just kind of awkward. Slow service - got glass of wine 20 mins after ordering it, server didn’t check back often. The food was pretty good. Although beware if you get the pepper tuna, it has a ton of pepper! Our kid was scrapping it off bc it was so overwhelming.

    It wasn’t horrible but definitely was not worth the price. For 4 people it was $250ish and while that’s not ridiculous, the price relative to the quality of the food made it seem egregiously overpriced. It’s fine if you want a lobster roll and a beer before a pacers game but I wouldn’t recommend it for a special event.

    We went there for the scallops, they are no longer on the menu and to celebrate my wife’s birthday. Service was slow, the waiter was new with no personality or familiarity with the menu. We arrived one hour after the Pacer game started on a Sunday night. Valet parking was $50 despite the valet lot half a block away being half empty! Parking cost in the attached garage was $30 despite it also offering multiple parking spots being available. Signage to the restaurant from the parking garage was non-existent. Overall a very disappointing experience at a restaurant we used to enjoy. We won’t be returning and will visit the Oceanier or McCormick & Schmidt’s the next time we visit downtown Indianapolis for seafood.

    Our reservation was at 5:45 pm. Seated promptly upon arrival. Took 45 minutes to get our drinks. Food order took place at the same time as drinks. After 1.5 hours with no food or explanation as to what was going on. Servers restaurant wide had disappeared. Finally called our server over, told us that she didn’t know what was going on but wasn’t her fault basically. We ended up leaving without eating. Very poor customer communication. We weren’t the only ones.

    Was very disappointed with service I did not get what I had ordered but accepted it because it had taken so long to get our food For a upscale seafood restaurant the menu is very lacking. Server made a big deal about the bar menu and after I loaded it on my phone as instructed and ordered a item he told me they didn’t have that item any longer and the menu wasn’t updated- will This was a place we liked to eat when downtown but will not return unless it changes back to being a top notch restaurant

    Service was a little slow to start, but was friendly and efficient after our initial exchange. Menu has been pared back a bit, but the quality of the food offered was outstanding. I had the bourbon glazed salmon with rice pilaf and steamed broccoli. My dining companion had the clam chowder & swordfish sandwich. We had a table outside on Georgia St. on a Friday night. Street traffic was WAY loud, so likely wouldn't choose that option on a weekend night. Overall a yummy experience!

    We were disappointed that the lunch menu was so limited but the food was still good. Service was a bit slow for the restaurant to be so empty. It’s like our server forgot about us. We had to get up and get our own drinks from the bar that had been sitting there for 10 min getting watered down. I expected better service for the price but I’d give them another try. At dinner time for a more robust menu. Perhaps when they’re busier the servers actually serve. We’ll see.

    Overall, we had a great meal and the service was excellent. The only exception was the grilled caesar salad. The dressing was not to our liking. I had the special which was sauted soft shell crab. It was excellent except for the asparagus which was a bit woody in texture.

    Tried to go here for Mother’s Day and they had literally no food. They ran an abbreviated menu and left you with two options and nothing on their menu online was available. Ruined our plans and many others in line waiting to get in. Will never return and I imagine this place will close soon.
