We have visited this restaurant several times as it is a local favorite. The food and service is good. Specialty sandwiches are delicious. The decor is just so so, however the view is on the water. I would recommend this for lunch.

This is a restaurant that has seating on the outside that looks out on the waterfront and is pretty. The food however, was not that good. We ordered oysters that were so small they added extra to apologize. I had a Caesar salad with anchovies...More

Plums has been a staple for us for years. Last couple of times lunch had been disappointing but dinner Thursday was off the chain! Everything on the table was fabulous!

Stopped for lunch because we were craving oysters and peel and eat shrimp. We sat out back on the patio overlooking the park and the water. Service was good but the food was not impressive. Steamed oysters were ok but the shrimp were not. They...More

This place used to be solid, but past 2-3 times the wait (AFTER being seating mind you) was over an hour. Taking an hour for a burger and shrimp and grits is unaxceptable. The burger wasn't great (seemed previously frozen) and the grits were watery...More

No complaints about the food. Our waitress was great. We didn’t have to wait long for our food. Although, they really need to get rid of the styrofoam cups... very unsustainable. The beer and wine is served in glassware, their other drinks should too. They...More

Sat on a back patio overlooking the riverfront, and had some VERY tasty fried shrimp. Service was attentive and good.
