First of all, we went on a Saturday night and the place was packed of course. There were 3 of us and we were actually seated at a table for three. I had to sit sideways in my chair because there was no where to put my feet if I faced the table because my chair was so close to... More

We would like to get more information from you, maybe you have a receipt. Not that you will get anyone in trouble, but we would like to ask our server why she would say no to cooking a steak the way a customer wants it. That is unacceptable and we need to correct that server asap. Please help us correct... More

I went here after being pretty tired from the beach and a boat ride by myself. The food was really great but the prices were a little more higher than the usual. I'd go again.

Whew! I hope you bring a hefty appetite to this place. The food was really good, but HUGE servings. Being the off season, seating and service was quick. Very friendly waiter that attended to every need.

I recommended this restaurant to my family as a farewell to our family reunion weekend. I enjoyed the food - most of my guests did - except for the guests who ordered hamburger - that dish was delayed for at least one hour!. I appreciate the good service of waiter Lucas; however he wasnt given enough help that he needed... More

We remember your party in particular. Your reservation was for 15 and 40 people showed up. We tried to accommodate the larger amount as best we could, and when your guests starting standing up on our chairs and shouting our Manager asked you to please respect the other guests in the restaurant. In the future, if you could please let... More

We strive for wholesome, fresh made food. All of our fish are fresh, our shrimp are wild-caught domestic & our crab is fresh blue crab ( not Asian blue swimming crab ). The crab list here is the largest variety around to include Blue Crab , Alaskan King Crab, Snow Crab, Dungeness Crab and Jonah Crab. Crawfish is offered seasonally. We present ourselves as "Seafood with a New Orleans Accent" with nuances of Chesapeake Bay. Since we are originally from New Orleans, we also have entrees like Shrimp Etoufee and other Cajun/Creole delicacies. Our lunch specials start at $7.99 daily.
