Super cool decor and amazingly flavorful shrimp & grits. We visited as part of a walking food tour. This meal was the highlight of the tour. Would highly recommend!

I was greeted with a smile and taken to a table which was open. The servers were polite and gave good descriptions of the menu items I inquired about. The food was downright disappointing. The gumbo was not spicy at all. I didn't feel that it was well seasoned. It was comparable to the gumbo in the can from Campbell's. The lobster mac & cheese lacked lobster.

A friend and I dined here for lunch last Friday, because the location is conveniently located near my place of employment. I chose the $18 Lobster Pie, however unfortunately, it was a complete disappointment. It looked very inviting, and although the crust was crispy on the top it was doughy just underneath, meaning that it was under-cooked on the top portion. The lobster tail appeared to have been frozen, and was a very tiny lobster tail that was over-cooked. This pie consisted mostly of vegetables and a few small shrimp, and my guest commented on how soupy the broth was...the served NEVER, and I mean NEVER, asked how was our meal, so I didn't even bother to complain.

Food is good, but not really worth the price. Service sucks! The server seem like she didn't want to give us the drink menu when we asked for it. She said she can just tell us the drinks they have. So, she eventually gave us a drink menu, took our drink order, and then told us we cannot get our drinks for 45 minutes because they don't serve alcohol until 12:30. This should have been posted somewhere!
