I normally go to the St. Peter's location, this was something new. I don't know if it was me, but the clam chowder, gumbo, and lobster bisque tasted sweet. Everyone else enjoyed their food.

My club met there for lunch. The restaurant had some issues with electricity, which made our wait a little longer. The food was worth the wait. They accommodated us with free desserts. They were very gracious.

Joe's was close to the hotel and our son wanted seafood. It was good, nothing spectacular. Run of the mill chain restaurant food.
