Best seafood in Knoxville! The James River Oysters are great, the Crab Bisque is amazing and the Salads, Dinners and Desserts are all done very well. The downtown location is a little better in my opinion with more intimate seating.

From the time you walk in until your dinning experience is over you will have a great time. Dave Cook at the bar is hands down amazing and does a great job at making you feel welcome and calling you (and remembering) your name. Anytime...More

Great Question and I wish I could answer it. I was with my 16 year old son, so I can't say for sure. That said, they had everything else. So I would think so. Picture a Cheesecake Factory but dedicated to seafood, Maryland... More
