The table was terribly slanted due to the warped flooring and no amount of adjustment fixed it in the least bit. Sauces from our dishes were slowly leaking onto our laps as we ate. We were seated directly in front of a window with no shade and the sun shined directly in our eyes during dinner. The server (Debbie) made us feel like we were being picky and refused to let us switch tables saying “it’s all part of the charm of the old building” and “its only during this time of year that the sun is a problem”. We were warned by Debbie that “Chef” is quite cranky and doesn’t allow any substitutions of side dishes because it slows the kitchen down. The chicken breast plate was $30 for about a measly 3-4 oz of meat and was dry. We all left hungry and paid $18 for a “young adult meal” that was as unsatisfying as it was expensive for our 10 year old. It was quite pricey, rude/poor service and we left hungry. Would NOT recommend.

CQ's is definitely fine dining. There are several levels and separate rooms where you can be seated. Ambiance is great the food is very good and the Martinis are to die for. I stop there every time I go even if it's just for a Martini.

We enjoyed a nice dinner at CQ's -- the best of Harbour Town's eating options. The restaurant is in a charming old house that has multiple rooms and levels, with a cozy bar and great ambiance. The website referenced a fixed price menu for under $30 available between 5 and 5:30, an excellent value if you don't mind eating early. (We did have to ask for the special fixed price menu -- there was no reference to it in the main menu.) The food was good and service was excellent.

We’ve dined at CQ’s on and off for 11+ years, this time with friends, but have seen a decidedly abrupt downward trajectory to mediocrity.

Whatever still recommends CQ’s (mostly warmth of atmosphere from architecture and location) is more than offset by the palpably attitude-laden staff — from the obviously well-tipped yet misanthropic bartender to the surly waitress (who confuses servility with service) to the busboy who was a smarty. Food was substandard too.

Unlikely to return until the owners or managers recognize that patrons have a choice. For me it’s “CUs!” Get your act together!
