Read all good reviews with the mind of "results may vary". Each review is of personal experiences. With that said let's just rate the food. Food is meh at best. Cook your own food and get better results. This location only selling point is that; the location. Convention center fodder. Filled with business men/women grabbing a well deserved alcoholic beverage and sub par meals. Sheryl from accounting eagerly cracking down on crab legs all the while you're realizing it's comical that you'd rather be at home with a bag of popcorn watching your favorite series of that lady who was left in a bunker.

For a chain restaurant it was OK. The location is very pleasant, right on the water. The service was marginal (slow and uninspired) and the decor equally tired. The food was well prepared, for what it was, and reasonably priced. The margaritas were near virgin with very little tequila. Honestly had the service been a bit better I would go back again. May be a really good Happy Hour haunt, You can't beat the location right on the bay downtown behind the convention center.

This is quite a nice restaurant that overlooks the harbor it's it's right on the water so you could technically get to it by boat if you wanted to. The food is good the place is fairly clean and the staff seems to be pretty friendly as well men's bathroom is a little different but overall we like to come here and seem to come each and every year.

Came in for a quick drink. Good prices. Awesome location. Sat at the bar. The bartender was informative and nice. Would not mind coming back with family and friends for more. :)

This was such a fun experience. First, they have a great view of the harbor. Second, they were so friendly! We got our food in a short amount of time and it tasted really good. It's so easy to over cook seafood... but our food was cooked to perfection! Our group enjoyed everything!

The place looked old, smelled like dead fish and was extremely dirty. The waitress was very attentive and friendly. The food left a lot to be desired. Hush puppies were dry and not fresh. Cesar salad was good. The crab rice tasted liked it had been sitting under a heating lamp for hours. The shrimp wrapped in bacon was not bad. I remember this place from childhood in a positive manner, but it is not what it used to be.

Great food! Server was occupied with other tables though and didn't pay any attention to mine.
