We made an 845p reservation for 3 people. Upon arrival, we waited for over 5 minutes to even be greeted. After checking in, we were told they didn't have any tables available DESPITE making a reservation. We were asked to wait at the bar area until a table became available. 30 minutes later...still no table. We went back up to the hostess to inquire and then finally got seated 10 minutes later; 40 minutes after our reservation time.
The server came over an took our appetizer order. We received the app, but didn't have silverware or plates. I asked for those items and be apologized and went to get them...so I thought. 10 minutes later and a cold appetizer...I flagged the waiter down again to get those items. He went to the back where I could see him on his cell phone. It still took an additional 5+ minutes to get the silverware and again he didn't bring plates. SERIOUSLY?!?!
We ordered a bottle of wine, which he clealy neglected to place the order, needed to be asked twice, and took over 30 minutes to receive.
The service continued in that fashion throughout our evening. Thankfully, the steaks were delicious and cooked properly! That was the only saving grace for this evening.

This was our third visit in as many weeks; two for lunch and one for dinner. The lunch was relaxing, enjoyable excellent service. Burgers, salads and sides excellent. Dinner was a disaster. Wait staff was awful. Felt like our server was new and did not know the menu. Meatloaf was very soft and too saucy, salad and salmon was good, chicken breast was good, shrimp and salmon was good. Grits excellent. Highly recommend for lunch, dinner not so much.

We enjoyed it quite a bit. The tv's in the main dining room bar need to go though. The scallops were great but at $34 a bit pricey for four ( albeit large ) of them and some grits. My wife enjoyed her steak. The decor is very nice.

Trendy atmosphere, great food, good drinks! Florida Margaritas were excellent. Had the seared ahi tuna, Caesar salad, filet with garlic mash, and beignet-style donuts for desert. Everything was prepared well and tasted very good! Especially the donuts, get the donuts!!!

First time visitor for holiday luncheon (party of 3). The scallops over cheese grits was delicious and the presentation was lovely. Appetizers that we tried were the calamari (amazing, nice size portion, aioli was yummy but not even necessary as the calamari had good flavor) and the dumplings (very good). The other diners had the salmon with orange ginger glaze and the grouper piccata, both were very pleased with the dishes. We also tried the famous donuts for dessert.

The restaurant has made changes that I didn't like. My wife and I dined at the restaurant back in 2014 and it was a totally different experience then. The atmosphere was different. Dim lighting with the light up menus was very elegant. The food was better as well. It has lost its edge over other restaurants in that area. It's no different than a Chillis or Applebee's now. We were very disappointed.

We have been dining at this restaurant for several years and every time we are impressed with the quality of the food, the quality of the service but more importantly the value it is very difficult for locally owned restaurants to compete with the larger chains but somehow this place managed to do it and they always exceed our expectations.

This was not our first experience at the restaurant. Everything was outstanding from the greeting at the door coming in and throughout the meal service. Highly recommended this restaurant to all my friends. Please bring back the fried lobster tails.. Thanks for your great service

The service and the dessert was excellent...the rest of the meal was boring. My wife ordered a drink and after taking a sip she didn't like it. Most restaurants would take it off the bill this one didn't (whatever). She wanted to order an apple martini instead but they didn't have the ingredients to make it. My steak was ok, wife had the salmon which was dry. Would only really come back for the dessert which was amazing.

I love this restaurant but was disappointed that it was my wife's birthday and they didn't do anything special for her. I told them twice it was her birthday. I thought maybe she would get a free dessert or something.

First time visit to this local restaurant. General manage came to visit. Waiter was s little timid but was very attentive. The food was good, but a little more bland then expected. I would return, but hope the choice is better. Salad was good. Overall I wood return. Much better then most.

We booked this reservation through Open Table for a birthday dinner. Unfortunately, when we made the reservations we were not advised that there was a "special" event Happy Hour taking place at the same time. Unfortunately, we could not hear each other talk. Not a single word unless we yelled it really loud to each other. It was not a good experience at all. I mean it looked like a great Happy Hour event, unfortunately, we were there just to celebrate birthdays and enjoy a nice meal and catch up with each other. We were unable to do so. We left early because it was just impossible to hear each other over the Happy Hour crowd.

Our server Connor was great. Very patient and answered all of our questions patiently. Food was great, Mojitos awesome.
I just had mojitos and donuts so I was thrilled, but everyone else loved their food. It was my first time there and I loved it.
