While visiting we stopped and had lunch. The food was fine, good, Nothing spectacular. The problem was the service. I don’t know if they just weren’t expecting as many people during the week or what. The lunch turned into an hour and a half.

I enjoyed the steamed shrimp and crab leg dinner, which came with ceasar salad, rice and corn on the cob and dinner rolls. A very nice meal with good service and a reasonable wine list and specialty drink menu.

Second time around and a year apart. The staff was wonderful the food is horrible! I'm a native. This is NOT a good representation of Savannah GA. I will never take anyone to this restaurant again. Embarrassing!

Many seafood choices along with other options. Definitely worth trying one of their signature shrimp dishes. You won’t be disappointed! And the service was wonderful.

The food was okay. Caesar Salad had no garlic, I couldn't taste any coconut in coconut shrimp and the shrimp in creole sauce was quite bland. The oven cooked breads was nice. Sorry but there are many better choices for seafood in Savannah.

Average. Shrimp & grits okay not great. Service okay not great. No one in our party was really impressed. Pretty sure there’s better places nearby.

First, the service was impeccable thanks to Ayla our server. The food was excellent. The appetizers were delectable and just the right quantity. The seared scallops were perfectly prepared. The shrimp burger, new to me, was delightful as was the shrimp salad on toast. As...More

Food was okay, nothing special. We got the catch of the day sandwich and shrimp and grits and neither was all that. The waitress was not good; we never received napkins at the table even after we asked and service was slow. The bathroom was...More
