"This place is awesome. The lobster bisque with garlic bread was heavenly. My husband has Firecracker Mahi and it was really delicious. We had a couple of very energetic children at the table next to us, but the overall experience was excellent."

"Beautiful view! Service seriously lacked. My daughters food never came, and the server didn't check on us till we were almost done with our meal. I just shared my mash potatoes with my daughter and fed her when we got home. I'll try to come back at dinner. Hopefully service will be better"

"The food is always good and the view of the harbor is excellent. Although still overall good and would recommend, it was not the usual excellence we were used to experiencing. The fish cuts seem to be a little smaller than they used to be, at least the night we were there. One of us asked for medium-rare (pink middled) salmon and received fully cooked (white middle). They did bring out a new perfectly cooked one immediately without a fuss speaking to the very good service. The macadamia crusted fish we ordered instead of macadamia nuts all over the fish seemed to have a spoonful of nuts placed after cooking, on the middle of it. They had switched out their table bread for a drier substitute though the garlic bread was still the usual delicious warm bread. Even so the fish all tasted delicious. I would go back."

"It was our son's birthday and we thought we would surprise him with a nice dinner at the restaurant. Our reservation for Saturday's evening was made earlier in the week with a request for a table with window view. We were very disappointed as when we got there, we were told that they could not accommodate even though, notes from the reservation system indicated that 'all request will be accommodated'.
As for the experience, there were a lot of choices on the menu including seafood and poultry. Good service!"

"Like the ambiance and location of the restaurant. Servers are very cheerful and courteous. Also like the fact that I can make reservations and not have to wait for a table since we usually have a large party."

"Went here to celebrate getting engaged. I am a landrys member and we were excited to come here. We got seated early and never got asked for water or anything else for over 20 minutes. The server was horrible and ended up walking out with out even ordering. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone."
