Never had a bad meal/appetizer/cocktail here -- even off the ridiculously cheap Happy Hour menus! Great selection and prices for top quality seafood! Bartenders are friendly and I love eating at the bar there... You will not be disappointed!
The food was awesome. We had dinner here since we were going to the concert at the Opera House. It was right across the street. So glad we did. Will be going back because it was so good. The homemade cheesecake was the best ending to our meal too.
This is one of our most favorite restaurants period. So far, everything has been great. This trip I had the BBQ and the Parmesan oysters. Superb! The seafood cocktail appetizer is a MUST, and the Creme Brulee is the best around!
Shiny stainless-steel buckets produce the menu items identified as “from the kettle:’ including a full-bodied-gumbo, the island’s best steamed mussels and a lighter version of shrimp scampi. As good as all of these are, the kitchen turns out some of its own wonders. Seafood catches change daily but are always reliable. A recent visit hooked tasty versions of grilled snapper, salmon and sea bass. This restaurant could hold its own anywhere. If it were in Houston, in fact, you would never be able to get a table.”
