Stopped in for dinner and ordered the blackened swordfish and my wife ordered the oysters. We also ordered an appetizer and salads, expecting them to come out first. Nope. Appetizer, salad, and entrees all came to the table at the same time. The food was...More

The restaurant is quite small. The service was good but the food was just average. The decor is dark and dated.

Decent food,. Friendly and fast service. Smaller place and a bit tight seating. Will stop by again in the future.

I've eaten here twice and I have to say that the brunch is something to look forward to. Super friendly service the wait times are average unless you make a reservation. I had the eggs benedict both times and would have it again. Delicious!

Although the service was ok and the decor was ok, the food was meh. I had the catch of the day- snapper with a baked potato and salad. The salad was fresh, but underdressed for its size. The baked potato tasted like it was left...More

Had Sunday morning breakfast here. My wife and I both ordered omlettes. I ordered mine with turkey and was surprised that it had roasted turkey breast in it, and not processed turkey! Good food and good service.

The food was good but a little overpriced for the portion size. It was loud and I felt like we were being rushed due to it being graduation.

We have eaten here as a family twice. The food has not been good nor bad yet somewhere in between. It fills you up but leaves you wanting something more succulent. In a pinch, I'd eat here again yet hope to never have that moment....More

This couple that gave Captain Ratty a bad review came in with an attitude in the first place, we were sitting right next to the hostess when they came in and overheard the whole conversation. They were rude, the couple didn't even give the young hostess a chance. It was very busy February 12th for dinner and there were several people waiting..they came in and expected to be seated.....then threatened the hostess that they will be getting a bad review on TripAdvisor. My only recommendation for the next time is to give the customer a longer wait period and hope that maybe a table will be ready before the time lapsed.

I felt the couple was completely out of line, nasty and used TripAdvisor to "payback" the restaurant for not giving them a time frame for getting seated.
