“Our service was stellar. The hostess sat us quickly and let my Patricia and I take a corner booth. Our server was great. My wife had the Shrimp and Grits. Old school yellow corn grits done old school right and an elegant yet spicy sauce with fat marinated shrimp. This dish isn’t easy to do right, but they got a badass in the kitchen somewhere. I picked the yellowfin and was as surprised by its size as I was its preparation. I asked for ‘rare’ and got it. Seared all around, but only enough. Spicy enough to notice, but not lose the fish in the marinate. That badass in the kitchen strikes again. We are both great cooks and enjoy it, so we don’t do this often. We had three signature drinks, a salad, two top shelf entrees, and an exceptional dessert and coffee. We spent $109 with taxes and tipped well over 15%. Worth every penny.” — Donald W.
“Farm to table gourmet food. We had the Brussels sprouts, pecan catfish, scallops with lentils and key lime pie dessert. All were simply outstanding! I’m coming back tomorrow night” —s. nance
“The food was amazing. I loved that most everything was fresh and local. The snapper was incredibly fresh and cooked to perfection. The burger that someone at our table ordered was even better. This is exactly what I wanted in a restaurant coming to the beach. Farm to table with incredible taste.” —j. jordon
