This was a birthday celebration and the only disappointment was that we had a 8 pm reservation and it was 8:27 before we were seated. Our server was great, and food was on point.

Went for a late dinner and ordered the yellowfin meatballs, fried oysters, and lamb chops. The meatballs were heavily spiced overpowering the tuna and for $13 there were 3 bite size meatballs. The fried oysters and lamb chops were good, but not great. Everything just felt very overpriced and mediocre.

Went for my wife’s birthday, food was meh - fried oysters were fishy and had pieces of shell. Sea bass was way too salty. Burrata and fries were good, mussels were delicious, beet salad was unimpressive and corn crab doughnuts were trash. Server was awful. A few years ago we are here and loved it, seems like things have changed. We won’t be back.

PS (not really the restaurants fault) but we were eating outside and got harassed by a homeless druggie. Had to pay him to go away. Really put a damper on the night

We ordered the Amish Pretzels, the Lobster Fingers, the Crab Cakes, and the Roasted Beef Short Rib. All of it was delicious and we would recommend giving those dishes a try!

It was packed - a little concerning given lack of social distancing between tables. Food was good but descriptions on the menu are misleading - don’t call slices of sausage ‘chips’ for example since they weren’t crispy or fried.

Despite all the great reviews, I found the food to be less than desirable. The lobster fingers were salty, even though I liked the sauce which had a nice horseradish taste to it. The fried oyster carbonara were okay with the black sauce. The scallops were soft in the middle but burnt on the tops/bottom while also having some grit and VERY salty. Ambience was great and service was good but the food was very disappointing

I went with a friend last night. And as I expected, as in every past visit, the food is consistently delicious. The service staff is attentive, friendly and helpful. Everyone who works there is friendly and goes out of their way to give service.

Food was good. Slow service. Took the waitress 20 minutes to take our order then another 20-25 minutes for the food to come out. Food was mostly good. Sweet potato hash did not taste good.

Great dinner for a birthday celebration! Spicy, creamy, garlicky etc shrimp and pretzels with cheese sauce got us off to a great start. Then tuna meatballs and beets by Chad. Entrees were great too: burger and scallops. Whipped cheesecake in a glass with fresh peaches was a perfect finish!
