If you don’t want to waste your money and end up with potential poisoning stay away. 3 hours after having dinner at this restaurant my husband had severe vomiting, cramps, and diarrhea like he’s never had in his life over the course of the entire night. I almost took him to the hospital and called poison control at 4am because the vomiting was so severe and it just wouldn’t stop every 2 hours. We almost feel like his food or drink was laced because the waitress had a very awkward demeanor and left her shift abruptly after we got our food. She didn’t check in once after drinks or food came out either. Whole staff wasn’t welcoming. My husband recovered after about 10 hours which confirms it wasn’t a virus or stomach bug but food or substance poisoning. Beware.

This is a wonderful place to eat and have time with your friends. They are very good at accommodating groups of six or more and the same for two or four. Just a swell place to eat and have fun with a great staff too to bottom !

Was told they had a 20 minute wait, but they had bar seats available. Had a seat at the bar and realized there were barely any customers inside. But everything else was great. 10 out of 10 for service and food.
We loved it so much we went 2 days in a row. The staff, manager, and owner are friendly and take their time to help each customer. The food is amazing, especially for a nonshore area. It's a popular, local place, so make sure to make reservations on the weekend. You can expect a 30 minute wait if you're waiting last minute for a bite to eat. We arrived at 5:30 on a Friday, and most of the tables were filled. Overall, a lot of fun food to try

The drinks are SPECTACULAR, had a Coconut/Pineapple Mojito, BEST EVER!!! Ordered the scallops they didn't taste fresh but the Manager was so kind, he allowed me to pick another dish with no fuss. Chose the lobster & shrimp pasta & it was absolutely delish.

This place is great. My fiancé got a Bloody Mary with grilled cheese on top and that just scratches the top of things you can get in a Bloody Mary. I ordered the beef cheesesteak (minus the cheese 😝) and it was great. Really tender and well seasoned. My server recommended the sweet potato fries as a side but they came out cold and hard; otherwise this place would have gotten a 5.

I went here for my birthday. Heidi was our server. She was awesome.We tried the baked oysters & they were delicious. The pasta was good as well. I ordered 1 of their seafood drinks. It was good. I can't remember which one, I think it was the Lobster Drink. It had a lobster tail, grilled cheese sandwich & shrimp skewers. The presentation was nice. The drink, I think it was the Ocean drink, was good. The hush puppies & honey butter are a must. I'm definitely going back. I want to try one of the bigger drinks with more people. The key lime pie was delicious.They offer outdoor seating and also have a bar inside.Plenty of parking.

OUT OF THE WORLD. The drinks are awesome, the food is great and the atmosphere is like a party. Our server was great. It was crowded when we got there and while we were waiting for a table our server came up and offered water and took our drink order. He was more helpful and friendly than you will find in most restaurants. We had a big group, and they treated us as if we had a small group. The manager came to check on us, and it seemed all the employees were helping and working together. The cooks did a great job, thanks to all these people, to make our experience a great one
