My girlfriend and I had lunch here on 03/13/16 and we ordered oysters on the half-shell which were good and we also ordered a bowl of gumbo which was very poor. She would rate it a 1 and if she could give it no stars she would. She indicated that the shrimp were not fresh and over cooked. Stale is... More

Came here for the first time. They don't do reservations, but our wait was only about 30 minutes. Food is very, very good :)

My husband and I stopped in for lunch during our visit to Hot Springs. We usually like to try local places. We were not impressed. I ordered the Mahi Mahi and he ordered the Grouper Oscar. We also had calamari for an appetizer and hush puppies. The hush puppies were doughy. The calamari tasted like something bought frozen at walmart.... More

We both got the crab cake sandwich with side salad but they had a fairly extensive menu! Wait staff was adequate. One sweet girl noticed us sitting and said it wasn't her table but helped us the whole meal anyway!

The food was good. The hush puppies made me very happy. And the peel-and-eat shrimp made my daughter VERY happy. We enjoyed sitting and watching the birds on the lake.

I can recommend the gumbo, it's the real deal. We like to sit outside to enjoy the view. The jumbo boiled shrimp are hard to pass up.

Very nice, fun restaurant. A little pricey, so not an every weekend restaurant. Atmosphere was great and watching the water was so peaceful. Can eat inside or out. Food was good too. The pic was taken from inside sitting at our table.

This was very fun experience. Plenty of parking. You can choose to eat inside or on the patio. We went during the summer and enjoyed eating on the patio. There are ceiling fans and other fans to keep you comfortable while you enjoy watching the boats go by. A good casual experience for a family. Children enjoyed feeding the ducks... More
