Food orders had to be sent back as they were cold but quality was good. A previous lunch visit was very good! Service was ok.

Grouper cheek dinner was good but nothing out of the ordinary. We sat indoors because we wanted to be warm but the air conditioning was on and we were cold

A long and creeping normalcy has befallen this once great restaurant. Now, it's just ok. Outside locals bar is great and bar food is fine; great ( very casual)meeting spot for friends. Food quality has dropped over the years but in unnoticeable increments. It has been about 11/2 - 2 years since our last visit. Big change to the negative... More

About 10 of us had dinner. It was crowded and noisy. One end of the table could not hear the other. The waiter had a sarcastic manner and when anyone had questions he was impatient with answering. The bisque soup had little flavor and no chunks if seafood. Also it is not cheap.
