Good crab legs (A) but small sides (D) for $32. and its very very expensive (F). Dessert was key lime pie which was fine but it was $8. So for one my bill was $52 with tax and tip. Just too much money.

Don't do it. Just don't even go. There is a nice restaurant just across the quad there with outdoor seating (opposite end of the fountain) that is just so much better.
