I was so disappointed in the service; Very snotty and totally not polite. The food was over priced. Scallops weren't any better than the ones at Bonefish Grill in our home area. Plus the service at Bonefish Grill is always top quality.

This restaurant is on our must do every year. Always incredible food and service. We highly recommend the pork chop, triple tail special and shrimp and grits. Being an Alice and Wonderland fan I love the decor. I do recommend calling for reservations in advance....More

We were skeptical looking at the outside, but I'm glad we went inside! White tablecloths and very quaint. There aren't many tables, so I suggest you make a reservation. We had the blue crab cake and goat cheese pillow appetizers which were delicious. My husband...More
